Suspension rubber buffer bump stop effect and influence on suspension

- Nov 13, 2018 -

Suspension is a general term for a device that guarantees a flexible connection between a wheel or an axle and a vehicle carrying system, and can transmit loads, slow down shocks, attenuate vibrations, and adjust the position of the vehicle while the vehicle is in motion. As an integral part of this, the suspension rubber bump relief stops greatly affecting the cushioning effect of the vehicle.


In practical applications, the main function of the suspension is to realize the transmission of force and torque, and to alleviate the impact generated when the car drives over uneven roads, and to attenuate the vibration of the bearing system caused by the vehicle to ensure the smooth ride of the car. The effect of mitigating the impact is mainly achieved by the suspension rubber buffer bump stop. In fact, in order to quickly attenuate unnecessary vibrations, the suspension must also include a damping element, ie a damper.


During the design process, the dynamic capacity of the suspension should be reasonably set. This parameter refers to the work consumed by the suspension from the position of the static load to the maximum deformation allowed by the structure. In general, the larger the dynamic capacity of the suspension, the less likely it is to stop the bump of the suspension rubber bumper.
