The vehicle - roadway interaction is actual engineering problem solved on many workplaces in the world. At the present time preference is given to numerical and experimental approaches. Vehicle designers are interested in the vibration of the vehicle and the forces acting on the vehicle. Civil engineers are interested in the load acting on the road. Solution of the problem can be carried out in time or in frequency domain. Road unevenness is the main source of kinematic excitation of the vehicle and therefore the main source of dynamic forces acting both on the road and the vehicle. The offered article deals with one of the possibilities of numerical analysis of the vehicle response in frequency domain. It works with quarter model of the vehicle. For the selected computational model of the vehicle it quantifies the Frequency Response Functions (FRF) of both force and kinematic quantities. It considers the stochastic road profile. The Power Spectral Density (PSD) of the road profile is used as input value for the calculation of Power Spectral Density of the response. All calculations are carried out numerically in the environment of program system MATLAB. When we know the modules of FRF or the Power Response Factors (PRF) of vehicle model the calculation of vehicle response in frequency domain is fast and efficient.
