  • Publication number: 20200066065
    Abstract: A method for measuring and logging the performance of a wheeled vehicle suspension system by measuring the dynamic performance of at least one component of said vehicle suspension system, the method including the steps of: setting the vehicle on a pre-determined path and within a pre-determined speed range; causing the suspension of said vehicle to be displaced by a substantially predetermined amount by causing the wheels of the vehicle to roll over one or more objects of known size on said path; measuring the displacement of said at least one suspension system component relative to the sprung mass of the vehicle and/or one or more fixed objects in response to said displacement; measuring the oscillation frequency of said at least one vehicle suspension system component in response to said displacement; and determining the suspension damping characteristics relating to the at least one vehicle suspension system component using the displacement and frequency measurements.
