Improved Approaches to the Measurement and Analysis of Torsional Vibration 2004-01-1723
A primary goal of NVH engineering is the identification and control of noise and vibration sources. In recent years the torsional vibration behaviour of engine and powertrain components has gained in significance. This paper discusses several aspects of measuring and analysing torsional vibration and related data. Several torsional vibration measurement techniques are presented, together with remarks on precautions against possible sources of error, and the order of accuracy to be expected of the test results. Two applications requiring multichannel measurement and analysis are outlined.
