The model based on a restoring force surface Testing and Modeling of Nonlinear Properties of Shock Absorbers for Vehicle Dynamics Studies

—The objective of this work is to develop a new testing and analysis methodology to obtain the nonlinear characteristics of an automotive shock absorber. The front shock absorber on a Mazda CX-7 was tested on the single-post shaker test bench. The shock absorber piston velocity test range is between 0.01m/s and 1.3m/s, corresponding to typical velocities of… CONTINUE READING
