Abstract – The suspension system in automobile serve purpose of holding road wheel in contact with the road surface as much as possible. It also contributes to vehicles handling for good active safety, keeping vehicle occupant comfortable. This paper is intended as overview of suspension for the heat transfer in shock absorber body & its effect on damping properties. The explanation for the effect of change in road profile on suspension. The recent trends in the field of automotive research regarding evaluation of suspension through simulation for the different class of road with different speed.
