Reduction of Noise and Vibration in Vehicles by an Appropriate Engine Mount System and Active Absorbers 960185

The ride and noise behavior of a vehicle is significantly affected by vibration transferred from the engine to the chassis through the engine mounts. In this paper conception and design strategies for engine mount systems based upon calculation and experimental methods are discussed. Analyses for static and dynamic engine loads and for idle shake vibrations are presented. The finite element analysis is applied to optimize a mount's rubber spring geometry. Furthermore, the role of the transfer path analysis in the optimization of an engine mount system is illustrated. Passive and semi-active engine mounts that significantly improve the isolation of the idle shake vibration will be discussed. Finally, fully active vibration absorbers which can be applied to solve noise problems, even at a late stage of a new car development program will be presented.
