Technical Papers

World leaders in the field of shock & vibration with over 60 years of industry experience. 


The advent of high speed equipment and machinery has brought with it numerous problems associated with slowing and stopping masses of various forms. The hydraulic shock absorber has proven to be one of the most satisfactory means of solving these problems, yet the shock absorber still remains as one of the least understood fluid power components. This paper presents design constraints, design parameters and a description of how to use shock absorbers into a system for the purpose of dissipating kinetic energy. Information is presented in both qualitative and functional equation format to enable the reader to grasp the subjective aspects of shock absorber usage which go beyond normal mathematical constraints.
