Self-Regulating Shock Absorber (MSC-22111)
Also, unlike hydraulic shock absorbers, the damping force in this shock absorber does not vary appreciably with speed of stroking. This invention can be used in any application where there is a possibility for an overload to the design load or where stabilization is needed.
A prototype of this technology was developed. The technology opportunity is part of the NASA Technology Transfer Program, the goal of which is to stimulate development of commercial applications of NASA developed technology. NASA is seeking industrial partners to continue the testing effort and license the technology for commercialization.
The invention, ¿Mechanical Energy Absorber,¿ is protected under U.S. patent number 5,423,400 issued on June 13, 1995. The patent is owned by the United States of America and was developed by NASA.
