Numerical Simulation of Shock Absorbers Heat Load for Semi-Active Vehicle Suspension System
MetadataShow full item record
Dynamic simulation, based on modelling, has a signtficant role during to the process of vehicle development. It is especially important in the first design stages, when relevant parameters are to be defined. Shock absorber, as an executive part of a semi-active suspension system, is exposed to thermal loads which can lead to its damage and degradation of characteristics. Therefore, this paper attempts to analyse a conversion of mechanical work into heat energy by use of a method of dynamic simulation. The issue of heat dissipation from the shock absorber has not been taken into consideration.
