What is Suspension Damping?

Suspension damping is the resistance to movement by a piston travelling through hydraulic fluid. When a shock absorber or damper moves, the shock piston (connected to the shock shaft) moves through the fluid inside the shock tube. Pressure is created in the direction of movement and it is this pressure differential which creates the resistive force in the movement of the piston. This is known as the damping force. Control of the suspension damping force is the function of the oil, valves and orifices in the piston, which suspension engineers have determined based on the shock’s intended application. How fast the piston is being pushed, called suspension velocity, also determines how the shock will react to a bump or dip in the road surface. As in the case with selecting springs, damping control is determined by application, and the optimal damping for comfort will be less than for fast road handling. Suspension damping modulates the velocity and resistance of a vehicle’s suspension to unwanted movements. A good example of this is to look at a car with worn shocks. You will notice the vehicle wallowing and moving up and down like a boat in rough seas. A properly damped vehicle goes through a road with a minimum of body movement. The goal of a properly damped suspension is to have a vehicle settle down after a bump or dip in the shortest time possible.

The suspension component tasked to dampen the resonant motions of a vehicle’s suspension is the shock absorber. This why it is technically called a damper. Aside from controlling the upward and downward movement of the vehicle body, a shock absorber must also dampen the unsprung components of the car, such as the hubs, wheels, axles and more often than not, the brakes. In a car will a solid axle, the shocks will also need to dampen the differential, which is a very heavy component. The movement of these components are also affected by the tires, which introduce some springing motions.

Suspension damping is velocity sensitive, which means that the damping force created by the shock depends on how fast the shock absorber is compressing or extending. While logic dictates that shaft velocity will double as you go through a bump at twice a given speed, it is also important to note that the shape of the obstacle is also as important. Given the same height, a square-edged bump will produce much more piston velocity than a gently rounded bump.

Compression damping is influenced by the size and shape of an obstacle and it will see a very wide range of velocities. Too much suspension damping on the compression stage cause unwanted tire deflection while too little causes brake dive and too much travel. Rebound damping, on the other hand, is mainly influenced by spring rate and sees less velocity changes. But rebound damping is equally important because too little damping will cause the suspension to oscillate uncontrollably.

It is generally preferable to have more low-speed damping for a good, firm controlled feeling, and less high-speed damping for a more comfortable ride on square-edged bumps. Once you recognize what adjustment you have and its effect, you can begin to fine-tune your suspension. But remember just because you have external adjusters doesn’t mean you have much control of the damping curve. Remember also that with adjusters you can make an improvement in one area and actually make it worse in another with the same setting change. When playing with adjusters, record your initial settings make one change at a time and record all your results.

Question by gussetboy2400: Anyone who got accepted to ivy league school with a high school suspension on their record?
I want real stories of real people accepted to Ivy’s / MIT / Caltech while having a suspension on their record.

Answer by Biofreak
I can’t give you any real life examples, but as a former admissions committee member at one of those schools, I can give you a reasonable answer. Basically, it depends on when and what you were suspended for. The admissions process is an attempt to screen applicants to make sure those accepted students will do well and contribute to the university. It seems to surprise people, but this process, especially at the top schools, is very subjective. A suspension will certainly raise questions about the character of that applicant in the minds of the admissions committee. However, the committee is made up of humans and is well aware that people make stupid mistakes or get caught up in uncharacteristic situations. So as long as the suspension was due to an issue that the committee feels is not indicative of future issues, they will likely over look it. None the less, it will certainly be noticed and discussed. Furthermore, if it comes down to an Applicant A or Applicant B situation, the applicant without the suspension will likely prevail, all other things being equal. The earlier the suspension occurred in your high school career, the better, as it is easier to explain away as immaturity or naivety. Things that I would consider less likely to be an issue would be things like throwing stuff on the bus or getting into a fight with another student. Things that are more likely to be an issue are things like getting into a fight with your teacher (as this shows lack of respect) or cheating. And, of course, if there are multiple suspensions, the second one will hurt much more than the first. You do not want to come across as someone with habitual issues. During my time on the admissions committee, I saw people accepted despite suspensions and other rejected because of it. So in the end, it all comes down to what the admissions committee thinks about your offense.

Daily Record, May 30, 2012
Leopoldo Salvador Reyes, 409 N. 14th Ave., made an initial appearance on a driving under suspension charge, a driving while license is denied, cancelled, revoked or suspended charge and a operating while vehicle license is suspended charge.

[wpramareviews asin=”B000O76KQM”] Q: Who can apply for a Canadian Record Suspension? A: To apply for a Canadian Record Suspension you need to be a person convicted in Canada for committing a criminal offense. You can also be a person convicted outside Canada but transferred to Canada under the International Transfer of Offenders Act. You need to have served your sentence and waited the prescribed period of time before applying for a Record Suspension, and you also need to be able to prove you became a law abiding citizen. “If you notice this video contains information that is out of date or incorrect, please post a comment below or please email us at so we can correct the information.
