THE SPEED-RESPONSIVE HYDRAULIC DAMPER, THE NEXT STAGE IN DAMPER DEVELOPMENT

Riding qualities and dynamic forces on the track have been thoroughly evaluated but the understanding of dampers in relation to reduced maintenance, both vehicular and track is also pertinent. Degree of magnitude of vertical and sinusoidal irregularities are expressed as a function of acceptable acceleration, excitation frequencies and amplitude. Ride-index values important in determining riding qualities but suspension characteristics in terms of reduced amplitude at higher speeds show speed-sensitive damping is desirable although the control system could be complex.
