The function of air suspension shock absorber
The shock absorber on the car is an important component in the car suspension system. Its function is to restrain the spring from absorbing vibration and the shock when the spring rebounds, and to absorb the impact from the road. It directly affects the ride comfort and maneuverability of the car, which in turn affects our driving safety.
When the car is driving on a rough road surface, the wheel is subjected to the ground impact force and transmitted to the vehicle body through the elastic element spring in the suspension system, thereby causing vibration of the vehicle body. During this process, the spring is constantly stretched and compressed, and oscillated under the action of inertia.
And in this process, because the adhesion between the wheel and the ground constantly changes, and even the wheel will leave the ground and lose the adhesion, the car will run out of control, which is the impact of the shock absorber on the handling of the car. The function of the damper is to delay the speed at which the spring is stretched and compressed, and absorb the shock caused thereby, so that the spring tends to stabilize quickly after deformation.
If there is no damper, the spring will be compressed again and rebound after rebounding, and the car body will rebound several times before it will stabilize, resulting in uncomfortable ride and poor car handling. Therefore, the damper is used to dampen the vibration of the spring of the air spring suspension when it rebounds. It is to reduce the vibration of the spring, instead of damping the body.
