MATHEMATICAL SUSPENSION MODELLING

The article describes how a simple mathematical model was used with an analogue computer to assess the difference in ride quality between an interconnected and a non-interconnected vehicle suspension system. The model is not intended to represent any particular type of interconnected suspension and is designed to show the advantages of this type of suspension. The interconnection is in series with the spring and damper system, this being a common method of application. /TRRL/
