Abstract

This paper shows the modeling and simulation of fuel economy and vehicle dynamics of a heavy truck with Modelica. The work was carried out on MWorks; which is developed by Huazhong University of Science & Technology. Comparisons between measured data and simulation results validate the correctness of the model; and demonstrate that Modelica can be used in the modeling and simulation of vehicle performance; and also shows the effectiveness Mworks software.
