  • Patent number: 8938330
    Abstract: A method is provided for characterizing a straight-line behavior of a given vehicle that includes at least one suspension device. For a given value of a parameter that when varied modifies a friction generated in each suspension device, the method includes steps of: applying a stress cycle to each suspension device so as to identify a friction present in each suspension device; determining, for each suspension device, a value of an indicator relating to the friction; repeating the applying step and the determining step by varying the parameter so as to obtain a variation of the indicator as a function of the parameter; and for each suspension device, determining an interval of a value of the parameter in which the indicator is greater than a predetermined threshold for the given vehicle.
