Abstract

The goal of this project was to synthesize an air manifold that regulates flow throughout an existing airbag suspension system for an automobile. The team estimated the requirements using fluid flow principles based on the requirements from the consumer. Different sensors and arrangements were investigated to ensure that the manifold could handle the requisite pressure requirements at each of the four wheels. A prototype was developed and tested to verify the performance and theoretical estimations.
