Development of an Experimental FRF-Based Substructuring Model to Forward Predict the Effects of Beam Axle Design Modifications on Passenger Vehicle Axle Whine 2007-01-2237
This paper describes the process used to develop an experimental model with forward prediction capabilities for passenger vehicle axle whine performance, focusing initially on beam axle design modifications. This process explains how experimental Transfer Path Analysis (TPA), Running Modes Analysis (RMA) and Modal Analysis were used along with an experimental FRF-Based Substructuring (FBS) model. The objective of FBS techniques is to predict the dynamic behavior of complex structures based on the dynamic properties of each component of the structure. The FBS model was created with two substructures, the body/suspension and the empty rear beam axle housing. Each step in the creation of the baseline FBS model was correlated, and the forward predictive capability was verified utilizing an experimental modification to the beam axle structure.
