Independent Wheel Suspension-Its Whys and Wherefores 340080
“ALTHOUGH it is not presented as a narrative,” Mr. Olley says, “this paper is really the story of our work for the past three years. The sequence of the paper follows almost exactly the development of the story.”
Independent suspension affects two things, it is pointed out-ride and steering. The first part of the paper discusses ride; the second part, independent suspension as it affects both ride and steering.
Mr. Olley offers no apology for injecting ride into the discussion, because, he says, “this is the reason why front suspension has been changed”. He adds: “It has always seemed to me that the most interesting thing about any design is not the design itself, but the reason behind it.” This paper gives the reasons.
