Vehicle axle with longitudinal elasticity limited by a stop device

Train de véhicule automobile à élasticité longitudinale limitée par un organe de butée

Motorfahrzeugachse mit durch einen Anschlag begrenzter Längs-Elastizität

Abstract

L'invention concerne un train de véhicule automobile comprenant un support de roue (13) lié à un bras oscillant (4) par une liaison élastique, qui procure à ce train une élasticité longitudinale. Cette élasticité est limitée par un organe de butée. La liaison flexible comprend au moins deux plaques flexibles (25, 26) sensiblement planes contenues dans deux plans distincts dont l'intersection coïncide avec un axe de rotation (A4) de la liaison flexible. Chaque plaque flexible (25, 26) a un premier bord (27, 28) rigidement fixé au bras oscillant (4) et un second bord (29, 30) rigidement fixé au support de roue (13). Au moins un organe de butée limitant le mouvement du support de roue (13) par rapport au bras oscillant (4) est prévu. L'invention est notamment destinée à un train arrière du type à traverse déformable.
The system has a wheel support (13) fixed to a trailing arm (4) by a flexible connection. The connection allows rotational movement of the support around a rotational axis. The connection has two flexible plates (25, 26) in two distinct planes whose intersection coincides with the axis. Each plate has one edge fixed to the arm, and another edge fixed to the support. A stop unit limits movement of the support with respect to the arm.
