This report represents the User’s Manual for the 3D dynamic load carriage simulator and automated test cell. Contained within this report are the hardware and software components in addition to instructions for users to run the system. If the system is ever moved to a new location, this manual must be taken with it for set-up and data acquisition. The changes to the automated programmable motion control system have created a number of functions not possible with the previous system. These functions include: 1) highly repeatable motion profiles independent of the operator; 2) determination of the system stiffness under dynamic conditions; 3) provision for quantitative validation of models of load carriage devices; 4) determination of the frequency response of LC suspension systems; and 5) creation of an automated test cell requiring minimal operator expertise and low cost for possible sale to support other countries modelling efforts.
