Optimization of Design Parameters Related to the Engine Mounting Using A Computer Aided Model 990027

Development of suitable engine mounting system, during vehicle development, by experimental methods is a time consuming process. Due to various constraints on design parameters it's difficult to apply all theoretical considerations in the design process. To simplify and expedite the design process a computer simulation tool is developed using ADAMS. The effect of various design parameters on the eigen frequencies and vibrations transferred to chassis is studied. With the help of parametric model optimum mount configurations can be selected. The potential of alternative mount configurations can be compared also.
