What is K&C Testing?

Suspension kinematics and compliance testing (K&C testing) is a critical type of suspension testing used by top manufacturers, suppliers, and race teams. K&C test data fingerprints a vehicle’s ride and handling performance and geometric attributes. This test data is crucial in competitor benchmarking and vehicle simulation. 

How Does it Work?

The test rig clamps to the vehicle chassis from the underside and moves it in vertical bounce, roll, and pitch. The tires stay in contact with a level “road plane” at four individual wheel pads. These wheel pads can maintain zero scrub force or they can introduce ground-level forces to simulate braking, acceleration, and cornering loads at the tire contact patches. Precision digital encoders and load cells measure tire loads and wheel orientations at all times.

K&C Data at Your Fingertips

Kinematics and compliance data is available for purchase on dozens of popular production vehicles. We’ve already performed the testing and reported the results. The data you need is ready for you. Hassle free.

Here’s What People are Saying:

“With the help of the very professional and competent team at Morse Measurement we got a fast and efficient evaluation of how our prototype performs versus our predictions, and a large step closer to reaching our development targets.”
Stefan Karlsson

Sr. Tech Specialist Vehicle Dynamics, Lucid Motors

“If you don’t invest the time and money in kinematics & compliance testing, you are leaving a lot of performance potential on the table. ”
Timothy Drotar

Sr. Research and Development Engineer, Ford Motor Company

“The data from Morse helps to identify gaps and deficits in our multi-body vehicle simulations – allowing for better quantification of ride and handling characteristics, as well as comparing to available vehicle benchmark data from target market leaders.”
Rachel Abril

Vehicle Dynamics Engineer, Byton
