This paper proposes a simple expression for calculating the restoring and the damping forces of an air spring equipped with an elongated tube as the orifice. Air springs are commonly used in railway vehicles, automobiles, and various vibration isolators. The air spring used in this study consists of two tanks connected by a long tube. Using a tube instead of an orifice enables flexibility in the arrangement of the two tanks. In addition, this makes it possible to manufacture a thin air spring.doi:10.1299/kikaic.78.3413 fatcat:we6jhf3fe5cbtgoyogks4b54jy
