The car suspension maximizes the friction between the road surface and the tires to give steering stability with good handling which ensure soothe of the passengers. This article explores about the working of car suspensions and design of suspensions in the future.
If a road is flat then suspensions are not necessary. As per Newton’s laws of motion, force has both magnitude and direction. The magnitude depends on striking of wheel to a giant bump or a tiny speck and the car wheels experience vertical acceleration when it passes over a bump.
The study of the forces on a moving car is known as vehicle dynamics and many automobile engineers determine the dynamics of a moving car from two concepts such as Ride, the car’s ability to comfort a bumpy road and Handling, the car’s ability to safely brake, accelerate, and corner.
The suspension of a car is the part of the chassis that comprises important systems. This system includes The frame is a structural load-carrying component to support the car’s engine and body, The suspension system is a setup to support weight, absorbs and dampens shock and also helps maintain tire contact, The steering system is a mechanism which guides and directs the vehicle, The tires and wheels are components to have grip and/or friction with the road.
There are suspensions used in the vehicles which are Dependent Front Suspensions, Independent Front Suspensions, Dependent Rear Suspensions, and Independent Rear Suspensions.
This DESIGN & FABRICATION OF SUSPENSION SYSTEMS Mech Project Report article concludes on the working of car suspensions and design of suspensions which maximize the friction between the road surface and the tires for the comfort of passengers.
