Reduction of Piston Slap Excitation with Optimization of Piston Profile 2000-05-0317
This paper presents the analytical method of piston secondary motion with an experimental verification for a small gasoline engine. To analyze the vibration, a modeling of the piston secondary motion is carried out and numerical simulation is performed. In this method, both dynamic characteristics of the part of piston skirt and cylinder liner are taken into consideration. As compared the simulated results with the experimental results, the validity of presented model has been confirmed and this numerical model is effective to comprehend the piston slap secondary motion.
