Abstract : A mehod for measuring spring rate and damping coefficient is necessary for complete laboratory evaluation of a suspension component. The report outlines a technique by which a linear model is adjusted by an analog computer so that its parameters match those of the test specimen. The accuracy of this linear model is good unless the test specimen parameters are very non-linear. (Author)
