Shock Absorber Load Testing

19 Jan 2018

We saw an opportunity to do this when a member of the team bought a new bike. We wanted to investigate the magnitude of loads being transferred through its shock absorber. We took the Mantracourt Fast USB Strain Module (FSU-SSBD) and connected it to a custom load pin provided by Hitec Sensors. The pin was positioned in place of the bolt at the front end of the shock absorber.

The fine detail of the dynamic loads was guaranteed by the high speed measurement of the FSU at 4800 sps and the unprecedented stability across temperature ranges of the Micro-Measurements Advanced Sensors Technology strain gauges with modulus compensation.
