  • Leaf Spring Force and Pressure Measurement
    The I-Scan (R) pressure measurement system is an extremely verstaile tool for leaf spring applications. Because of the sensor's unique, thin design (> 0.1mm thick), measurements can be made quickly between two or more mating leaf springs and all at the same time.
  • 2002 Lincoln Blackwood
    , and a stabilizer bar. In back, a five-link, load-leveling leaf and air-spring hybrid setup smooths the ride with its acceleration-sensitive shocks and stabilizer bar. The single leaf spring's parabolic cross section helps it handle the weight of an unloaded vehicle on the rear axle. As passengers and cargo
  • 2000 GMC Suburban
    to straighten the entire frame after an accident. For a better ride, GM switched to coil springs in the rear suspension instead of leaf springs. Because the Suburban seems to have become a family vehicle, this design should be more comfortable and ride more smoothly than the leaf spring it replaces
  • Squeaks happen: A little grease might do the trick
    Automotive lubricants can often quiet noisy components easily and economically. DaimlerChrysler uses extremely viscous damping grease to quiet leaf-spring squeaks. Silicone greases are often used to eliminate noise in push-pull cable applications. Ford, GM, and DaimlerChrysler, for example, all use
  • Something new in everyday FEA
    Cynics might say there is nothing new in linear static-stress analysis (LSSA) it's a mature technology. CAD-like sketching tools let users quickly produce FEA models directly within the Algor Fempro single-user interface. Automatic, unstructured meshing of the 2D leaf-spring assembly is accessed
  • Grinder Documentation Essential to Safety
    preparing to cut metal rivets attaching a broken leaf-spring bracket to the body of a dump truck. His son owned both the truck and the grinder. He had bought the latter at an auction at least five years earlier. The grinder's owner had used it without a problem several months before the incident
  • 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
    , that soaks up more lateral forces than the previous solid-axle leaf-spring configuration, according to Mercury engineers. It also increases longitudinal-force compliance, improving ride by isolating and reducing forces transmitted through the frame. Up front, SLA with coil-over-shock replaces torsion bars
  • Envirometrics Avoids Toxic Pesticides to Save Trees
    A Northeast Ohio company's expertise stands to save trees from the ravages of leaf-eating insects without pesticides. Envirometrics of London, Ontario knew that timing is critical to prevent bugs from killing the trees. "Fall cankerworm is the predominant defoliator of oak, elm, ash and other
  • Quieting Impact and Vibration (.pdf)
    Spring technology for dampening is relatively old. Stagecoaches had leaf springs, early trains had large, crude, coil-spring buffers (to absorb shocks when cars bumped together) and early automobiles made use of simple springs for dampening as well. However, these early springs were roughly
  • Specifications
    For basic and plunger-actuated switches, this is stated as a range. The low limit indicates the smallest differential obtainable. For switches with leaf or lever actuators, the movement differential is generally the maximum movement of the actuating device that ensures operation of the switch
