Vibration properties of road vehicles can be in principles evaluated using two ways, i. e. by simulation computations using a virtual model of a vehicle and by measuring on a real vehicle prototype, whereby, their dynamical properties are usually assessed in compliance with to two criterions, namely from the ride comfort for passengers point of view and from the driving safety point of view. The topic of this article is focused on evaluation of passenger’s ride comfort of a tricycle. In this regard, vertical movements of a vehicle are most important. In respect of ride comfort for passengers, accelerations in vertical direction are critical. Accelerations are usually detected on a seat. In regard of driving safety, value of the contact force between a wheel and a road are decisive. In our research we present process of investigation of level of ride comfort for passengers and level of driving safety of a tricycle based on simulation computations using the tricycle multibody model.
