The aim of this research work is to Study the Heat Transfer in Air-gap and in Shock Absorber body and from body to surround, to complete this objectives Shock Absorber test Rig was constructed. Most of shock absorber contains the air gap inside the shock absorber between internal cylinder and outer body, Air gap has lower heat transfer rate, and so Problem of overheating will be effect of damping fluid characteristics and decrease shock absorber performance, to improve heat transfer air gap is filled by fluid substance like ethylene glycol, propylene glycol and glycerol and collect Required data of improved Heat Transfer into Shock Absorber , Finally ethylene glycol as a substance can be increased heat transfer inside absorber up to 52%, And propylene glycol as a substance can be increase heat transfer inside shock absorber up to 39 but glycerol give maximum heat transfer rate up to 64 % . With increase heat transfer rate from inside absorber to surroundings problem of overheating of damper fluid should be decrease and maintain shock absorber performance for long time.
Keywords- Heat Transfer, Shock Absorber Tester, Propylene glycol, Ethylene glycol, Glycerol
