DESIGN AND VALIDATION OF VARIABLE RATE PNEUMATIC SPRINGS

This paper provides information on theory and design methods used to tailor pneumatic spring rate and natural frequency. Equations utilized in the design procedure are presented, and the interaction of the important variables is discussed. The vital role of laboratory testing and validation is emphasized. Although the paper is restricted to pneumatic spring design, peripheral equipment such as leveling valves and auxiliary reservoirs are addressed.
