FULLY-ACTIVE SUSPENSION BY AUTONOMOUS LOW-LOSS HYDRAULIC STRUTS

Buses would be advantaged - both as to passenger comfort and to vehicle maintenance and longevity - by a suspension system operating at or near zero rate as affecting the sprung mass. At the same time, such a system should be able to provide precise ride height and roll squat and dive-resisting forces at each wheel without reference to support forces at other wheels and at the same time with only indirectly related control of the unsprung masses by re-ingestion. Fully-active and semi-active suspension systems are described to achieve these objectives by all-hydraulic means. (Author/TRRL)
