This research investigates a pneumatic suspension system containing an air spring, air flow valve, and an accumulator, where the spring and damping functions are combined into one package. The spring and accumulator provide the spring characteristics, and the computer controlled adjustable valve provides the damping characteristics by automatically adjusting the air flow between the air spring and the accumulator. An extensive analysis and investigation of the plant dynamics is performed. A… 
CONTRIBUTION TO THE MODELING OF A PNEUMATIC SEMI-ACTIVE CONTROL OF VEHICLE SUSPENSION
This paper contributes to the modeling of a semi-active control of a quarter vehicle model using air springs. A conventional mass-spring-damper model has been used along with an air spring. Based on
