Contributions to experimental research OF technical state of suspension and of its influence upon confort and adherence to the road surface for opel corsa vehicle
The experimental work presented in this paper shows some of the achievements during practical testing of the suspension system and wheel train in order to gain information on their influence upon adherence or road contact stability. The experimental tests were conducted in order to point out the influence of suspension springs, tires and dampers on the adherence and road contact between tires and sustaining surface. There were examined the weight axle and suspension efficiency on each wheel of the vehicle during vibration of the testing plates. In the experimental work are also specified the main vehicle components and the suspension test-bed infrastructure in order to gain further more quality and definition of the practical procedure. The opportunity and main significance of testing the suspension quality at different vibration frequencies and for each wheel of the two vehicle’s axles in order to point out adherence level is based on the capacity of test-bed and on the importance of vibration influences in vehicle’s over-all performance.
