Fang, Z., Guo, X., and Xu, L., "Energy Dissipation and Recovery of Vehicle Shock Absorbers," SAE Technical Paper 2012-01-2037, 2012, doi:10.4271/2012-01-2037.
This paper presented a brief derivation of the energy dissipation by vehicle shock absorbers. Analysis between energy dissipation and damping coefficient, the road displacement power spectral density, the vehicle speed and the tire stiffness was carried out. Then an energy recovery scheme was put forward, and the bench test proved that the energy harvest scheme is feasible. In the end, this paper provided detailed derivation of the characteristics of the hydraulic electromagnetic energy-regenerative shock absorber, which increases its feasibility and practicability.
