Elevator ride comfort depends on various parameters, such as noise, vertical vibration, lateral quaking, car dynamics, door dynamics, and door noise. For high-rise elevators, these parameters have to be optimized using computational methods, because prototyping and testing can be done, in most cases, only at the site. For lateral vibrations, several computational methods can be used: multibody system (MBS) simulation, finite element method (FEM), or analytical methods. In this paper, the assumptions and limitations of FEM and MBS are analyzed and compared. In addition, hybrid methods are assessed. The study is cascaded from the elevator level to the components that are directly affecting the ride comfort. The validation methods of each simulation are discussed.
