This paper introduces a novel passive suspension system for ground vehicles. This system is based on a flexible Electromagnetic Shock Absorber (EMSA). In the proposed system, efforts are made to a) select a high damping coefficient usable in a car b) determine Physical dimensions and geometry not much different from those of the mechanical shock absorbers and c) seletct EMSA weight and volume low enough for the core not to be saturated. A model is designed and developed followed by determining the dynamic equations for the model. The results from the simulation in a quarter car model are then compared with those from passive and active suspension systems.
