Noise Reduction and Sound Quality Improvement of Valve Train in V6 Gasoline Engine

This paper presents an advanced technique for noise reduction and sound quality analysis in direct-acting type of valve train system. Mechanical Lash Adjust (MLA) system has lower friction loss and simpler and lighter structure in comparison with Hydraulic Lash Adjust (HLA). Despite of such advantages, MLA system has a weak point which generates harsh impulsive noise whenever cam comes into contact or detaches suddenly from tappet during the valve operation in the ramp area. A sound quality analysis technique was used to analyze the detail noise and vibration characteristics during valve opening and closing operation respectively. This paper describes a procedure and advanced technique to identify noise sources and its generation mechanism by analyzing measured data taken from direct-acting valve train system. Subsequently, an optimum cam profile was redesigned and used in new Hyundai-motor V6 engine.

Experimental and Analytical Approach for Identification of Driveline Clunk Source & Transfer Path

Driveline clunk is perceived as disturbing metallic noise due to severe impact at driveline components such as gear pairs when the engine torque is suddenly applied and transmitted to the driveline system. In this work, experimental method detecting the most contributive gear pair to the clunk generation was investigated and applied to mini van vehicle of front-engine and rear-wheel-drive. Another experimental method, TPA (Transfer Path Analysis), was employed to identify transfer path of the clunk. And then, driveline clunk model was developed using commercial multi-body-dynamics program, ADAMS, in order to further investigate the critical clunk mechanism and potential clunk reduction solutions by performing parameter study.
