Correct kinematics and compliance modeling of a MacPherson strut suspension requires including the physics of strut rod bending. Various approaches to modeling this bending are available, but these require extensive testing or iteration to achieve reasonable results. This paper presents a new method of modeling strut bending that relies only on easily measured physical characteristics, and yet maintains a high degree of accuracy.
