Virtual Analysis of Engine Mount Stiffness and Stopper Gap Tuning for Better NVH Performance 2017-26-0196

Key on/off Vibrations plays an important role in the quality of NVH on a vehicle. Hence having a good KOKO in the vehicle is desirable by every OEM. The vibration transfer to the vehicle can be refined by either reducing the source vibrations or improving isolation. In this study, critical factors affecting KOKO vibration has been identified. Focus has been given on improving the KOKO by change in mounting system stiffness & stopper gap, and assuming other parameters as constant. The study highlights a new simulation approach using ADAMS View to help run a DOE for solving KOKO issue on vehicle. The contribution of C mount stiffness and stopper gap is shown through simulation results. The correlation between simulation & test results has been established by measuring rigid body modes and KOKO vibration on vehicle for a set of mount configuration. Test results show significant KOKO improvement with the mount configuration optimized through simulation. This provides a guideline for mounting system design & optimisation at the early stage of the vehicle development.
