Analysis of hydraulic system for adjustable ground clearance mechanism
The stability of a vehicle depends on many parameters.The Centre of Gravity is one of the most important in them. If the height of center of gravity from the ground decreases the stability of the vehicle increases. But when the ground clearance is too low it has a chance of collision vehicle and the ground while going on an uneven road or with speed brakes. So, to avoid the collision of a vehicle to ground and increase the stability a mechanism to adjust the ground clearance is to be attached. Also, the lift and drag forces can also be altered using this adjustable ground clearance mechanism. The designers usually fix ground clearance and they try to acquire this by the suspension system. The suspension system has tires, tire air, springs, shock absorber, and other parts to connect the vehicle with the wheels. The present paper describes the significance of using hydraulic oil as a working fluid in an adjustable ground clearance mechanism. Also describes the design and analysis of piston and cylinder rod.
