Application Research on Elastomer Damper in Tracked Vehicle Suspension System

Abstract:

Article Preview

Because traditional passive suspension system can’t meet with the requirement of ride in all kinds of roads, elastomer damper was designed and installed on the limiting stopper of the suspension system. Two degrees of freedom model of suspension system with elastomer damper was built and its dynamics simulation was done by use of the software Recurdyn. The simulation results show that the application of elastomer damper can improve the ride of tracked vehicle; the striking force apparently decreases when suspension system has broken down and the probability of suspension system breakdown has been obviously reduced, all of which illustrates the elastomer damper has an obvious dampening effect on the tracked vehicle. Keywords: elastomer damper, tracked vehicle, suspension system, dynamics simulation
