Experimental Analysis and Model Validation of a Dual Mass Flywheel for Passenger Cars 2015-01-1121

This paper investigates the torsional dynamic behaviour of a Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF) both numerically and experimentally. First, the experimental setup is described, followed by a mathematical description in the frequency domain of the mechanical system under test, using a lumped parameter model. An analytical expression for the frequency response function describing the rotational dynamics is derived and compared with experimental data. Sine sweep tests are used to characterise the system, imposing constant amplitude excitation, i.e. the torque applied to the engine side of the DMF. Moreover a method for enhancing the dynamic performance of the electric motor torque control is suggested in order to use it as a torsional shaker. The effects of system nonlinearities, such as the variations of the stiffness with the amplitude of excitation or the influence of the mean torque value on the frequency response are highlighted; finally the effect of the rotational speed on the DMF filtering effect is investigated.
