The Optimization of Engine Vibration Reduction by Simulation Analysis 962203

This paper describes a method for effectively reducing a level of idling vibration in heavy-duty trucks, which has been the point at issue lately. In this method, the vibration level is significantly reduced by using a full vehicle model, which is made by finite elements, and varying parameters to study effects. In order to achieve high accuracy, engine excitation forces calculated from the measured fluctuation in the flywheel angular velocity are input to the model. An effective use of this method in an early development stage has enabled us to reduce development cost and the lead-time.
