Predictive Calculation of Idling Rattle in Manual Transmissions -Based on Experimental Measurements of Gear Vibration Occurring in Backlashes- 2003-01-0678
It is generally known that the idling rattle in manual transmissions is caused by gear tooth portions that make repeated impact-generating vibrations in the backlashes. These vibrations result from rotational fluctuations of the flywheel induced by combustion in the engine.
In the study reported here, the authors constructed an experimental setup using rotary encoders and a transient torsional angle converter that allowed the long-awaited direct measurement of impact-generating vibrations in the backlashes. Using this experimental result, the following ideas that the authors must pay attention for the numerical simulation are obtained. That is, transmission drag torque is to be input and treated as the offset value in the torque value of the torsional characteristics in the clutch disc, and coefficients of attenuation have great influence upon the calculation result.
