I'm trying to find a suitable shock absorber for a small ATV with a specific value (to be determined later). But everywhere I look, no one seems to be giving the damping ratio of the shock absorbers. I'm not expert in this field, so I'm wondering if I'm missing something, and that in reality I don't need the damping ratio to select a proper shock absorber, and that the damping ratio in fact can be controlled by some other means?
All I have is the intro to vibration degree course where the damping ratio was always given.
Thanks for the help in advance.
