Optimization of Steering Routings for Elimination of Noise Issue from Steering System 2017-26-0220

With the increase in the sensitivity of power steering system in the competitive environment, it becomes essential to provide a trouble free steering system to the customer.
Usually major concerns faced in the performance of steering system are related to noise like vane pump whining noise and steering gearbox erratic rubbing noise. Even though selected steering pump and reservoir are quite compatible to the steering gearbox.
With the series of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations and field tests, it is found that the cavitation phenomena in steering oil routing lines is responsible for the steering turning noise.
In this paper, a developed systematic approach for problem detection to implementation of design solution is discussed.
