Investigations on Independent Suspensions on Trucks 982843

Requirements for constant track and camber have a much greater priority with commercial vehicles than on passenger cars. The target can be reached by a concept of rigid wheel suspension elements. It may cause some problems due to structural noise (vibration transfer). However, on commercial vehicles with elastic suspended driver cabs the noise transfer problem is considered to be manageable by suitable cab suspension elements, on buses a compromise in the tuning has to be found regarding overall damping.
