the present work studies how to determine the best combined dimensions of control variables to achieve an optimal mass flowrate in order the better damping performance on radio-controlled vehicles. According to this, we are going to design a DOE based on Taguchi´s (10) to measure the influence of fluid viscosity (μ), perimeter holes diameter (PHD), centre hole diameter (CHD) and hole length (HL) of different drilled plates used as a critical part of a RC vehicle damper. This DOE design will be L16 with three control variables already described and a fixed value (μ, WAGNERSIL S200). On the other hand, drilled plates will be 3d printed and self-designed by CAD, using ARTILLERY SIDEWINDER X1 “fdm” printing system.
