DEVELOPMENT OF THE AXLE DESIGN OF CAR WITH INDEPENDENT SUSPENSIONS

Authors: M. Sharmiashvili, R. Phartskhaladze, V. Margvelashvili, S. Mebonia


Abstract:

A parallel-frame suspension with two equal-length arms has been developed. The main elastic elements of the suspension are longitudinal torsion bars, which have the ability compression to adjust the ride height. The advantage of independent suspensions in comparison with continuous axles is as follows: uniform traction on the road surface in off-road conditions; reduction of un sprung masses.

Keywords: drive axle; independent suspension; torsion bar
