Analytical Study for Transient Driveline Clunk Response Subject to Step Torque Input by a Mass Release System 2007-01-2244
A series of laboratory driveline clunk experiment was conducted by using an overhung torsion bar and electromagnet to create a sudden change in torque loading in the driveline system. The change of the torque loading was designed to force the driveline to go through the gear lashes inside the rear axle and result in clunk phenomenon. The study was investigated by using a simulation code developed in Matlab and ADAMS CAE. The analytical study enabled parametric investigation of component contribution to various time responses exhibited in the experiment. The results also revealed intricate interaction between the friction properties and the driveline torsional dynamics which were observed in the experiment.
