Shock absorbers, linear dampers, and dashpots are devices designed to provide absorption of shock and smooth deceleration in linear motion applications.
They may be mechanical (e.g., elastomeric or coil spring), or rely on a fluid (gas, air, hydraulic), which absorbs shock by allowing controlled flow from outer to inner chamber of a cylinder during piston actuation. The piston rod is typically returned to the unloaded position with a spring.
Shock absorbers typically contain...
