Proposed Design

Air spring system

l      The air spring expands to lift a weight a certain distance with a change in pressure.

Potential Components

        Air spring

        Linear displacement transducer

        Spring

        Mass

        Thermocouple

        Safety shields

        Pressure transducer

        Force Transducer/Load cell

 

Pros Cons
-One direction of movement
-Inflator placed inside
-Mass on air spring can be varied
-Bladder dynamics
-Bladder fabrication

Compressed Gas Inflator

This compressed gas inflator will be used to test the air spring system.
