A strut is a mechanical device designed to smooth out or damp shock impulse, and convert kinetic energy to another form of energy. It is used in conjunction with cushions and springs. An automobile strut contains spring-loaded check valves and orifices to control the flow of oil through an internal piston.
One design consideration, when designing or choosing a strut, is where that energy will go. In most struts, energy is converted to heat inside the viscous fluid. In hydraulic cylinders, the hydraulic fluid heats up, while in air cylinders, the hot air is usually exhausted to the atmosphere. In other types of struts, such as electromagnetic types, the dissipated energy can be stored and used later. Struts help cushion vehicles on uneven roads.
