An Application of Variation Simulation - Predicting Interior Driveline Vibration Based on Production Variation of Imbalance and Runout 2011-01-1543
An application of variation simulation for predicting vehicle interior driveline vibration is presented. The model, based on a “Monte Carlo”-style approach, predicts the noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) response of the vehicle driveline based on distributions of imbalance and runout derived from manufacturing production variation (the forcing function) and the vehicle's sensitivity to the forcing function. The model is used to illustrate the change in vehicle interior vibration that results when changes are made to production variation for runout and imbalance of driveline components, and how those same changes result in different responses based on vehicle sensitivity.
