INVESTIGATION OF CORRELATION BETWEEN SHOCK-ABSORBER FORCES ON A PRIVATE CAR

Shock-absorber forces were measured on a car by means of a monment-free arrangement incorporating strain-guges, and recorded with a multi-channel tape recorder. The point of interest was time-related recording of the front left and corresponding rear force and of the two rear forces. The dampers were new, production, single-tube types. The car had independent front and rear suspensions. Its total weight, ready for the measurements, was about 1,700 kg. And the width of the rear wheel track was 1.44 m. From the measurements, correlations were established between the low excitation functions. This article originally appeared in automobil-industrie, February 1972, Vol. 17, No. 1, P. 59-69.
