Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How can one calculate the dimensions of valve shims in Gas pressure shock absorber?

Desription-

The valve shims are orifices to the fluid flow in the hydraulic damping system. The dimensions play a very vital role in the adjustment of compression and rebound of the damper.

I have been working on trial and error method, taking some reference dyno graphs, but can not manage to find a formula to calculate the exact dimensions of valve shims.

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
