The Effect of Engine Mounting on the Shake of Body on Key-Off of a Jeep 912572

The vibration of a vehicle, which is caused by and transmitted from the engine, has significant effect on the ride comfort and the dynamic characteristics of the engine mount system have direct influence on the vibration and noise of the vehicle.
This paper examines the body shake caused by the engine excitation force on engine key-off of a jeep by experiment and computer simulation using a general purpose mechanical system analysis program, DADS.
The computer model consists of the engine, body including frame, and front and rear axles and each axle has two right and left tires. The force element between body and suspension is modeled as a combination of suspension spring and damper, and the unsprung mass has roll and pitch.
The body shake obtained from experiment was compared with the result of computer simulation, and by using the verified computer model, parametric study of the body shake on engine key-off is performed with changing the stiffness of engine mount rubber, the engine mount angle, and position of engine mounts.
