Vehicle Response to Throttle Tip-In/Tip-Out 850967

Throttle tip-in/tip-out maneuvers generate a driveline torque transient which may produce an objectionable disturbance to vehicle occupants. Recent developments in vehicle design have contributed to increased severity in this response, which is known as clunk and shuffle. This paper describes experimental procedures which have been developed to quantify response levels and diagnose cases of concern. These techniques are useful for developing engine control systems which require transient strategies that differ greatly from those required for steady state operation. In addition, specific design and calibration modifications, which control clunk and shuffle, are described.
