Damper Performance Development 962551

Damper performance prediction through mathematical and empirical descriptions of components assists evaluation and development. The damper components define the mechanical properties of the damper that influence dynamic response. Fluid properties and empirical flow resistance formulas describe the fluid dynamics of the system.
This paper presents an outline of the method to evaluate and develop race car dampers based on physical characteristics. Comparison to dynamometer testing provides validation and accuracy information of this method.
