Damping of roll vibrations of vehicle suspension

Small forced vibrations of an axle model of independent suspensions having four degrees of freedom are studied. The exact analytical solution of the generalised Lagrange equation enables one to produce 3D plots of the normalised amplitudes of forced vibrations versus frequency and excitation ratio or phase difference of the road inputs. The analysis of these plots exhibits some deficiency in damping of roll vibrations of conventional vehicle suspensions. The possibilities of improvement are discussed.
