HEAVY-DUTY TRUCK SUSPENSIONS

Truck suspensions for heavy-duty trucks perform complex and conflicting functions and have been the subject of much development. This paper provides information on many types of suspensions presently in use and indicates those applications for which the particular types of suspensions in use are best suited. While primary emphasis is placed on leaf spring suspensions, data are also provided on other types of suspension such as rubber, air, torsion bar, and solid mount suspensions which are in current use.
