torsional rigidity
Explanation:


Hi Danny

Glossary: Torsional Rigidity
Sometimes called chassis stiffness. It relates to how rigid the chassis is in twisting. Imagine a sport utility vehicle that needs to climb over rocks. Those without long suspension movements sometimes have lower torsional rigidity to allow the chassis to respond to uneven ground. A passenger car, on the other hand, should have high torsional rigidity in order to give the car a smooth ride, less vibration and better handling. Sports and performance cars are usually the stiffest in order to minimize any flex except for that offered by the springs and shocks to obtain consistent handling.

torsional


Explanation:
Torsion damper or torsional vibration damper - a device that reduces torsional vibration, specifically the small flywhell on the front end of a crankshaft. Crankshaft vibration dampers are designed to reduce torsional vibration, the small but sometimes dangerous angular oscillations a shaft undergoes, as the alternately ignited cylinders deliver torque spikes to the shaft via the pistons and connecting rods. Crankshaft torsional vibration is inherent in all internal combustion engines and can be especially harmful in high horsepower, high rpm applications, like drag motors, if a properly designed damper is not utilized.
