Analysis of SBR polymer adapted to an automobile damping system

Adin Gil, Antonio Huang, Luz Jiménez, Paul Madrid, Fatima Reyna, Delkis Vergara


To improve the reliability of the damping system of an automobile we investigated a new design which adds a rubber bushing and spring in parallel with the existing spring. This model provides acceptable stiffness values regarding the car suspension.
Simulation shows that this model adds a resistance feature to the dynamic constant changes.
