Abstract

In this study, the effect of the production type of air suspension on the product quality characteristics has been investigated; which are part of the suspension systems in vehicle. The physical and mechanical properties of fabricated air spring bellows were determined taking into account the relevant standards. In scope of the work for determining mechanical performance of fabricated air spring bellows, The Explode Test Machine, The Conveying-Widening and Life Test Machines were used. For analyzing the mechanical properties of manufactured air spring bellows; explode, conveying-widening and life tests has been effectuated. After the tests, explode pressure of air spring bellows, value of carrying load, the changes of the value of force in case of repeatedly loading were determined. Moreover, the value of loading capacity of the air spring bellows and the dimensional changes within the horizontal displacement values were determined.
