Kinematics & Compliance Testing

Suspension performance, defined.

Kinematics and Compliance (K&C) rig

K&C testing is used to evaluate suspension system performance of road and race vehicles.

Kinematics – measurement of the articulation of a vehicle’s wheels due to its suspension geometry.
Compliance – measurement of the deflection, under load, of a vehicle’s wheels (reflecting the stiffness of its various metallic and elastomeric suspension components).

K&C applications:
