Dynamic Interactions Between Loaded and Unloaded Gear Pairs Under Rattle Conditions 2001-01-1553

In many manual transmissions, conditions for the onset of vibro-impacts from an unloaded gear pair are more likely than from an engaged set. Although some of the general characteristics of neutral gear rattle are known, no specific analytical models are available in the literature that can explain interactions between unloaded and loaded gear pairs in the drive rattle mode. For the sake of illustration, a particular problem for a light duty truck is studied in this paper and dynamic interactions are investigated. Some experimental measurements are first presented to define the unloaded gear rattle problem. Linear and non-linear mathematical models of the driveline are developed to understand, quantify and control the rattle problem. Trends predicted by simulations are compared with those observed in experiments. The effects of various gear run-ups and vibratory drag torques are investigated.
