Polybush properties

In order to accurately model the vibration response I need to have the material properties of all the components in the system. The most obvious is the steel framework of the vehicle, which is straight forward. Then we have the other suspension components; Springs, Dampers and Bushes.

Springs are reasonably easy to obtain data for, and the length and rate are usually available off the shelf in reasonable incraments.

Dampers and Bushes are trickier, Having spoken to polybush they have furnished me with some data for their 75 Shore-A hardness range of polyurethane.

Polybush 75 Shore-A

The data for 65 and 85 Shore-A versions is also available, will work with this first and see if I need a harder compound.
