Application of Multiple Dynamic Vibration Absorbers to Reduce NVH Risks Caused by Alternative Half Shaft Design 2017-01-1058

Increased focus on fuel efficiency and vehicle emissions has led the automotive industry to look into low weight alternative designs for powertrain system components. These new design changes pose challenges to vehicle attributes like NVH, durability, etc. Further, the requirement of high power applications produces even more complexities. The present work explains how a potential design change of half shafts driven by a desire to reduce weight and cost can lead to NVH problems caused by half shaft resonances and explains how using multiple dynamic vibration absorbers can solve the issue to meet customer expectation while improving efficiency. With the aid of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) & optimization software, interactions between multiple DVA’s on a system was understood and optimal damper parameters for effective damping was identified. The final DVA design was tested and verified on the vehicle for optimal attribute performance.
