The use of fluidic components in a hydropneumatic suspension system is expected to significantly improve certain performance characteristics of the suspension system. Several candidate variable damping and variable springing systems are discussed. The damping and springing parameters are functions of relative position between the wheel and the vehicle body, relative velocity, and vertical acceleration of the vehicle body. A mathematical model is derived for each candidate system. A brief performance analysis of selected systems is presented.
