SLIM-SUSPENSION INTERACTION

An attempt is made to quantify the interaction between suspension system and a single-sided linear motor (SLIM) that is due to the levitation force generated by the SLIM. The conventional type of suspension system is examined. The results reflect on the suitability of combining a SLIM propulsion with conventional suspension systems.
