This paper describes a new testing and analysis methodology for obtaining equivalent linear stiffness and damping of automotive shock absorbers for use in systemlevel chassis and vehicle computer aided engineering (CAE) models for noise and vibration prediction. Since most of the system-level CAE models in a vehicle are linear in nature, equivalent linear parameters of chassis components are much more useful than comprehensive non-linear models. Also, a hydraulic actuated elastomer test machine… CONTINUE READING
