Abstract
(EN)
A suspension is arranged to support wheels (20) on both sides of a vehicle for movement in the vertical direction. The suspension includes two suspension arms (16) mounted, in use, on a body or chassis (10) of the vehicle and arranged to move vertically in sympathy with the wheel movement. A transmission unit (24) is supported by the arms (16). The transmission unit (24) transmits drive to the wheels (20) through driving shafts (22). In use, vertical movement of the wheels (20) is transmitted through the arms (16) to produce a smaller vertical movement of the transmission unit (24) relative to the body or chassis (10). Such a suspension is shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings.

Suspension conçue pour supporter des roues (20) des deux côtés d'un véhicule, pour qu'elles puissent se déplacer dans un sens vertical. La suspension comprend deux bras de suspension (16) montés sur le châssis (10) du véhicule et conçus pour se déplacer verticalement conjointement au déplacement des roues. Un ensemble de transmission (24) est supporté par les bras (16). Cet ensemble de transmission (24) transmet un entraînement aux roues (20) par l'intermédiaire des arbres de transmission (22). En fonctionnement, le déplacement vertical des roues (20) est transmis par l'intermédiaire des bras (16), afin de provoquer un déplacement vertical inférieur de l'ensemble de transmission (24) par rapport au châssis (10). Ce type de suspension est illustré par la figure 1.
