DAMPING IN SUSPENSIONS 460229

THE various types of damping present in vehicle suspensions and their effect on the ride are discussed by Mr. O'Connor, who compares the characteristics of the various types of damping with the mathematically adaptable viscous damping.
The ideal damper and the present-day practical approach are considered.
The discussion is maintained on a nonmathematical plane throughout, as the author believes that the mathematics of vibration theory is ably covered in numerous texts on the subject.
