Abstract: The necessary terrain profile measurements for vehicle ride dynamics analysis are defined and the existing devices for profile measurement are evaluated in this context. The available analytical methods for classification and Interpretation of profiles are discussed and it is concluded that the power spectral density and amplitude distribution of profiles yield sufficient information for valid comparison. Methods for instrumenting vehicles for vibration measurements are discussed, with emphasis on data collection and analysis. Results of a field test feasibility study are reported. The test involved the analysis of vibration records from three military trucks and an attempt to measure profile from wheel spindle acceleration.
