In this paper, we analyze an improved suspension system with the incorporated inerter device of the quarter-car model to obtain optimal design parameters for maximum comfort level for a driver and passengers. That is achieved by finding the analytical solution for the system of ordinary differential equations, which enables us to generate an optimization problem whose objective function is based on the international standards of admissible acceleration levels (ISO 2631-1, Mechanical Vibration and Shock-Evaluation of Human Exposure to Whole-Body Vibration-Part 1, 1997). The considered approach ensures the highest level of comfort for the driver and passengers due to a favorable reduction in body vibrations. Numerical examples, based on actually measured road profiles, are presented at the end of the paper to prove the validity of the proposed approach and its suitability for the problem at hand. © 2010 Springer-Verlag.
