Rider influence on modal properties of bicycle frames
Keywords:Boundary conditions, Dynamic response, Man machine systems, Maneuverability, Modal analysis, Bicycle frames, Motion analysis
AbstractModal analysis of bicycles was carried out to find their dynamic behavior and the influence of rider and boundary conditions on the modal parameters of road bikes. Out-of-plane motion analysis and in-plane analysis were performed to identify the modes of the bicycle. The analyses were performed in the free-free condition and with the bicycle standing stationary on the floor with a rider. The dynamic behavior of bicycle was found to increase with the interaction of rider.
