Windshield Wiper System Design Integration 2011-01-0239
This paper presents development work on the design and analysis of the windshield wiper system. Three design categories are presented: geometrical design, wiper module and motor kinetics, and snow block structural analysis method.
A comprehensive structural analysis method is outlined to determine the wiper system capability for continuous operation under a snow blocked condition. By using this design and analysis method, a robust windshield wiper system will be achieved.
