Cover Story (view full-size image): An inerter is a system that can store mechanical energy for a rather short amount of time and behaves analogously to a capacitor in electrical engineering. In a vehicle suspension, an inerter can be used to reduce wheel vibrations. The first example application analyzed within this paper concerns a Formula Student race car in which the main objective represents the maximization of the mechanical grip to improve lap times. The second application is an agricultural tractor in which the focus is on the reduction of the ground pressure to protect the environment. In both applications, a considerable improvement potential was identified. View this paper.
