Experimental investigation of damping force of twin tube shock absorber

Authors(2) :-Tushar Nemade, Hemant Chaudhari

A shock absorber is a mechanical device. It’s like hydraulic (oil) pump like devices It is used to damp shock impulse and use convert kinetic energy into thermal energy. The shock absorber damping effect depends on damping force. The damping force is affected by various parameters such as number of holes, damping diameter and suspension velocity. In this analysis three process parameters damping diameter(A), number of holes(B) and suspension velocity(C) were considered and their effect on damping force of shock absorber was studied. This data is then used in orthogonal array which was selected by taguchi method. Using servo hydraulic testing machine and after conducting experiments damping force was measured. And with the S/N ratio, ANOVA, Regression analysis optimum parameter values can be obtained and confirmation experiments were carried out. The experiment was conducted on Twin tube shock absorber.
