Correlation Study of Oil Strainer Mounting Bracket for Dynamic Loading
Oil strainer is used in engine oil sump, which prevents dirt, scale and other particle from clogging downstream orifice. In this paper, dynamic analysis was carried out using FEA tool. As a part of dynamic analysis, constrained modal analysis and frequency response (steady state dynamics) analysis was done. Frequency response analysis was done for different engine exciting frequency at different service load (vibration amplitude). Modal superposition method is used for doing frequency response analysis and load is applied as base excitation. The natural frequency from modal analysis and stress response from frequency response analysis is well correlated with test results. Based on achieved good correlation with test, several design modification could be carried out in CAE before finalizing the final design.
