Title (EN) ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION ASSEMBLY
(FR) ASSEMBLAGE DE SUSPENSION REGLABLE
Abstract:
(EN) A novel, vehicular suspension system (10) comprising an air-bag shock absorbing assembly (12, 13, 17) acting in cooperation with a plurality of sequentially deformable elastomeric members (41a-d, 51a-f). The air-bag carries a portion of the load and at least some of the elastomeric members carry the remainder of the load. Each elastomeric member (41a-d, 51a-f) is supported in a retaining member (421-d, 53a-f) so arranged that, as the load on the suspension system is increased, additional ones of the elastomeric members are sequentially compressed and absorb more of the load.
(FR) Un nouveau systeme de suspension pour vehicule (10) comprend un assemblage d"absorption des chocs a poche d"air (12, 13, 17) cooperant avec une pluralite d"organes elastomeres deformables successivement (41a-d, 51a-f). L"enveloppe ou poche d"air porte une partie de la charge et au moins quelques uns des organes elastomeres portent le reste de la charge. Chaque organe elastomere (41a-d, 51a-f) est supporte par un element de retenue (42a-d, 53a-f) de telle sorte que, lorsque la charge sur le systeme de suspension augmente, des organes elastomeres supplementaires sont comprimes successivement et absorbent davantage la charge.
