A Prediction Method of Vehicle Vibration caused by the Drive Torque Fluctuation at Takeoff 2007-01-3499
Clutch judder phenomenon is known as a vehicle vibration caused by the drive torque fluctuation from the clutch unit at takeoff. In this paper, a novel strategy for improving clutch judder phenomenon caused by the movement/tolerance between mechanical parts comprising the clutch system is introduced. In order to simulate the movements of the clutch system and of the vehicle drivelines precisely, we used numerical analysis software and have achieved high-grade prediction of the clutch torque fluctuation and the vehicle vibration. Using this method, we have developed a high-quality clutch system that enables smoother clutch engagement, and at the same time, development efficiency has been improved.
