Road Simulators: The iterative algorithm for drive file creation.

  Road simulators reproduce measured service environments in laboratory based test rigs and have contributed significantly to improving the structural integrity and quality of modern vehicles. These rigs are driven by data that are derived from a specified response and the frequency response function of the test rig in an iterative process. This paper introduces an alternative iterative procedure that converges to a valid drive file in fewer iteration steps than the current algorithm.
