The impact of the number of cylinders on two downsized gasoline engines on driving habits in the same passenger-vehicle type was investigated. This was carried out with two similar vehicles, equipped with an in-line three cylinder (i3) and an in-line four cylinder engine, both having same power, torque and transient-response behaviour. Both engine types were mated to six-speed manual transmissions with same gear-ratios and dual-mass flywheel characteristics. The study was performed by letting 21 subjects driving the same route and both vehicles consecutively. The relevant data during driving were recorded simultaneously from either vehicle integrated sensors (CAN), and secondary transducers. We found that the in-line three cylinder was operated at higher engine speeds even though it was operated at similar acceleration- and load levels like the in-line four cylinder power-train, whereat the off-set of the engine speed shows no correlation with the difference in firing frequency between both engine types.

This paper describes the characteristics and mechanism of crankshaft impact noise that radiates from the cylinder body at full load medium engine speeds, based on the mechanism for axial vibration of crankshaft coupled with torsional vibration of crankshaft. Crankshaft Impact noise (hereinafter referred to as ‘impact noise’) is heard as an intermittent noise from the front of the 6-cylinder in-line engine at the full load engine speeds from 1000rpm to 1500rpm, predominant at 1200rpm, and the impact noise frequency ranges from 1.5 kHz to 3.5 kHz. The following steps were taken to prove that impact noise is caused by an axial vibration of crankshaft coupled with a torsional vibration of crankshaft. Firstly, impact noise was heard from the engine front, and thus the noise at a distance of one meter from the engine front, the vibrations on the cylinder body at No.1 crank-journal center and the crank angle were measured at a full load speed of 1200 rpm. In the measurement, the large vibrations (hereinafter referred to as ‘impact vibration’) were detected three times per two rotations of crankshaft at about 50° after the firing top dead centers (50° ATDC) of No.1, No.3 and No.2 cylinders, and impact noise was detected at a crank angle of about 50°ATDC of No.1 cylinder and at this angle, the impact vibration was the largest.

Downsizing and downspeeding are currently important development approaches of the automobile industry to improve fuel efficiency and to reduce emissions. Decreased operational speeds in combination with higher combustion pressures lead to an increase of the excitation of torsional vibrations by the combustion engine. Torsional vibrations in powertrains can cause strength and NVH problems as well as lower the driving comfort and reliability of the vehicle. Simultaneously, increasing customer demands for operating smoothness and driving performance additionally exacerbate the requirements. Currently the conventional systems for reduction of torsional vibrations, e.g. dual mass flywheels, are increasingly reaching their limits. In cooperation of three institutes of the Technische Universität München (TUM) innovative concepts for an improved reduction of torsional vibrations in automotive powertrains have been developed ([1], [2], [3], [4], [5]). Several of those concepts have been realized as prototype assemblies engineered by the Gear Research Centre (FZG).

To research the torsional vibration damping characteristic of magneto-rheological fluid dual mass flywheel (MRF-DMF) and the control system in drive train, the multi-degree power train torsional vibration model which contains MRF-DMF and fuzzy control model are built, then the damping characteristic of MRF-DMF in several conditions are gained and compared with MRF-DMF when no control system. The result indicates: the damping characteristic of MRF-DMF effect on power train when using control is better than without control in idle, speed up, slow down, ignition and stalling, while the damping characteristic is less obvious in constant speed because the simulation condition and damping moment relatively stable.

Because of the vehicle market competitive and of the raise of customers’ demanding, NVH performance became an important job, especially for new energy vehicles. As the electric vehicle moving into the direction of high speed and large torque, electric vehicle vibration and noise problems highlighted gradually. In recent years, CAE has played an increasing role in the design ,development and optimization of powertrain NVH at component and system levels. The subject of this paper was the numerical and experimental evaluation of the electromagnetic and vibro-acoustic behavior of an electric powertrain. For this purpose, a coupled and fully flexible dynamics model of the electric powertrain was developed. Then electromagnetic forces including both radial and tangential force and gear mesh excitations including time-varying meshing stiffness, meshing error and meshing impact were computed, which were used to perform forced response analysis on the full FE mesh of the powertrain housing. An experimental bench was used to test the vibration acceleration and radiation noise of the electric powertrain in semi-anechoic room.

This paper reports 1D and 3D CFD analyses aiming to improve the gas-dynamic noise emission of a downsized turbocharged VVA engine through the re-design of the intake air-box device, consisting in the introduction of external or internal resonators. Nowadays, modern SI ICEs show more and more complex architectures that, while improving the brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC), may be responsible for the increased noise radiation at the engine intake mouth. In particular VVA systems allow for the actuation of advanced valve strategies that provide a reduction in the BSFC at part load operations thanks to the intake line de-throttling. In these conditions, due to a less effective attenuation of the pressure waves that travel along the intake system, VVA engines produce higher gas-dynamic noise levels. The worsening of the engine gas-dynamic performance can be compensated with a partial re-design of the air-box device, without significantly penalizing the engine power output. In order to find new design configurations of the air-box device capable of improving the noise levels, different numerical models can be successfully employed.

Success of the vehicle in cold countries depends on performance of the vehicle under cold climatic conditions. In automobiles, structural elastomer components have strong influence on vehicle performance including NVH, ride comfort & durability. Elastomers are sensitive in nature to these climatic conditions due to its temperature dependent visco-elastic behavior. Thus, it is very important to understand structural elastomer component's performance at sub zero temperatures. In a vehicle Engine mount is used to hold engine firmly and isolate vibrations away from chassis. Vibration isolation of a mount at low temperature is generally affected by the rubber composition. Major ingredients of the rubber composition influencing the low temperature characteristics are Elastomer type, filler type, plasticizer and curing system. Rubber composition plays key role in achieving engine mount properties like static stiffness, dynamic stiffness, permanent set and durability. In this work, influence of low temperature has been successfully evaluated for engine mount application by varying elastomer type, filler type, plasticizer and curing system.

Road trains have been applied as one of the efficient ways for transportation of goods in different countries like United States, Canada, Brazil and Australia. These long vehicles have a wide variety in length or towing systems like fifth wheel or dolly draw-bar and based on specific measured and regulation could be authorized to move in specific roads. In order to avoid hazard and danger in case of accidents of these vehicles, safety performance of a specific type of these vehicles, called B-train, is investigated in this paper. A Multi-Body Dynamics (MBD) model of a B-train, which consists of a prime mover and two trailers coupled by fifth wheels, are simulated in first phase of study. The developed dynamic model is capable of simulating required tests as well as SAE lane change and constant radius turn for roll and yaw stability analysis and safety evaluation. As far as transportation of fuel or other hazardous liquid are a common usage of B-train vehicles, the effects of liquid fill level variation are also considered in this research.

Durability of components plays a major role in the total cost of ownership of a commercial vehicle. The powertrain mount is one such component which is constantly at work in a vehicle and its rubber characteristics play a major role in the NVH and Life of the component. This paper presents the enhanced durability benefits obtained by changing the polymer composition, manufacturing methods and design optimization of a powertrain mount. The methodology involved characterization of the existing mount, arriving a new compound formulation, making of prototypes, experimental validation for durability and repeatability in the laboratory combined with rigorous on field vehicle trials. NVH measurements were also carried out on the improved mounts. The above exhaustive exercise resulted in the development of a comprehensively far better mount than an existing mount with improved durability without compromise on NVH properties. The cost benefit in terms of the total vehicle life was enhanced to a large extent.

This paper describes the prediction of vibration and transfer path analysis (TPA) using the multi body dynamics (MBD) model of engine and measured frequency response functions (FRF). In agriculture machines, a demand for comfortable work environment is increasing. Reduction of noise and vibration at an operator position is one of these demands. In order to improve the vibration at evaluation position that is operator position, it is important that we take measures against the most contributed transfer path from vibration source to evaluation position. TPA has been used to grasp each contribution of vibration transfer paths. In the TPA, input force from vibration source to passive part should be identified accurately. In the traditional TPA, determination of force is done by mount stiffness method and matrix inversion method. In these traditional methods, the determination of force is done using only experimental result. Therefore, it is difficult to predict beforehand effects of improvement for structure and isolation system.

This paper will deal with a phenomenon commonly observed in commercial highway vehicles with solid-beam front axles. The phenomenon is typically self-excited and manifests itself as a sustained oscillation about the kingpin in two forms, shimmy and wobble. Wobble is defined as a rotational oscillation about the kingpin while shimmy is wobble accompanied by axle tramp and hop motions. To fully understand the causes of the phenomenon and to develop a corrective action plan, a cross functional team was formed which employed multiple tools and strategies. A tractor that exhibited the phenomenon was selected for physical evaluation and was subsequently baseline tested by measuring the frequency and amplitude of the oscillation at various vehicle speeds. An ADAMS model was developed to simulate the tractor and reproduce the vehicle behavior. A DOE was developed to quantify the impact of a large number of variables and combinations of variables for both physical testing and simulation. Assorted variables were found to have primary, secondary and tertiary impact on the phenomenon.

Through inverse dynamics-based modeling and computer simulations for a 6x6 unmanned ground vehicle in stochastic terrain conditions, this paper analytically presents a coupled impact of different driveline system configurations and a suspension design on vehicle dynamics, including vehicle mobility and energy efficiency. A new approach in this research work involves an estimation of each axle contribution to the level of potential mobility loss/increase and/or energy consumption increase/reduction. As it is shown, the drive axles of the vehicle interfere with the vehicle’s dynamics through the distribution of the wheel’s normal reactions and wheel torques. The interference causes the dynamics of the independent systems to become operationally coupled/fused, and thus diminishes the vehicle’s mobility and energy efficiency. The analysis is achieved by the use on new mobility indices and energy efficiency indices which are functionally coupled/fused. Four possible scenarios are considered to trade between mobility and energy efficiency improvements by re-distributing power between the drive axles in severe/extreme terrain conditions, including poor mu-conditions, and high longitudinal and lateral slopes.

 In recent years, the demand for low noise operating agricultural machines is increasing. The engine installed on machines is one of a major sound source. The air-borne noise radiated from the vibration of the engine surface affects the sound quality of the surrounding and at the operator’s point.  For the reduction of noise radiated from the engine, the engine enclosure and the sound absorbing material into the engine room are adopted.  However, the installation of the sound absorbing material leads to the increase in product cost. The structural improvement of the engine room also causes the increase in development period of the product. In order to reduce the noise level effectively at evaluation points, it is necessary to grasp the characteristics of sound source, and predict the improvement effect in advance.  In this study, the sound source model of a diesel engine that is installed on the agricultural machine is identified by inverse-numerical acoustic analysis (INA). INA is a method to identify the surface vibration of sound source from the sound pressure around sound source.

This paper describes the development and testing of a Dynamic Vibration Absorber to reduce frame beaming vibration in a highway tractor. Frame beaming is as old as the ladder frame. It occurs when the first vertical bending mode of the frame is excited by road or wheel-end inputs. This is frequently a smooth-road problem that occurs at highway speeds (50 to 60 MPH) when the tire rotational frequency coincides with the frame beaming frequency. Rear drive tire run-out is especially good at exciting the frame. It is primarily a driver comfort problem. Up until now, few options were available to resolve this problem. The paper will review the phenomenon, design factors affecting a vehicle's sensitivity, and the principles of Dynamic Vibration Absorbers (AKA Tuned Mass Dampers). Finally, the paper will describe simulation and testing that led to the development of an effective vibration absorber as a field fix.

Different types of axle suspension systems have evolved for large size mining trucks to achieve improved attenuation of terrain-induced whole-body vibration (WBV) transmitted to the operator and to attain higher operating speeds. The hydro-pneumatic struts are increasingly being used together with different linkage configurations, which could yield widely different kinematic and dynamic properties and thereby the ride and handling performance of the vehicle. This paper presents comprehensive analyses of the different independent front suspension linkages that have been implemented in various off-road vehicles, namely a composite linkage Macpherson strut type suspension (CLT), a candle type suspension (CT), a longitudinal arm type suspension (LAT), and a double wishbone type suspension (DWT). The relative performance analyses are evaluated on the basis of handling dynamics of a 190 tons mining truck. The kinematic variations in camber, caster, inclination angle, toe-in and horizontal wheel center displacements of different linkage suspensions are synthesized via wheel bounce excitations in the MapleSim platform.

The demand for comfort level in commercial vehicles is steadily increasing. Hence, fine-tuned performance parameters and attributes are required to fulfill the expectations from these vehicles. Refinement of noise and vibration without affecting performances of sub-systems and components has become extremely challenging. This paper presents an approach to identify and reduce the whistling noise that was perceived in the passenger compartment when the vehicle was accelerated above 50 Kmph. Whistling noise is a characteristic of aerodynamic behavior of a component and is produced in the higher RPM and frequency range. Thus Engine Cooling fan, turbocharger, intake unit, exhaust,Alternators and Compressors were suspected. Interior noise measurements revealed that the whistling noise is of specific order. Using NVH techniques like Order tracking and Near field measurements, HVAC alternator was identified as the source of whistling noise. Narrow down approach using noise analysis confirmed the alternator cooling fan as problematic noise radiating component.

At present, we have developed a fundamentally new design of adaptive suspension systems of vehicles. Their technical characteristics and functional abilities are far better than the existing designs of suspensions. We have developed the following main suspension components of vehicles: a lockable adaptive shock absorber with an ultra-wide range (hyper range) of control performance, implementing "lockout" mode by means of blocking adaptive shock absorber, and an elastic element (spring, torsion, and so on) with progressive non-linear characteristic and automatic optimization of localization of work areas. Our design has no analogues in the practice of modern transport engineering. Our patents confirm the novelty and efficiency of our major design decisions. Advantages of our developments in the vehicle suspensions are the following: Firstly, it should be noted that when the vehicle is in a wide range of speeds in a so-called "comfort zone", we were able, by applying the non-linear elastic element, to reduce significantly the stiffness of the elastic suspension elements in compare with the regular structures - at least in two times!

Knowledge of vehicle dynamics variables is very important for vehicle control systems that aim to improve handling characteristics and passenger safety. However for both technical and economical reasons some fundamental data (e.g., Lateral tire-road forces and vehicle sideslip angle) are not measurable in a standard car. This paper proposes a novel Interacting Multiple Model Filter-Based method to estimate lateral tire-road forces by utilizing real-time measurements. The method uses measurements (yaw rate, roll rate, accelerations, steering angle and wheel speed) only from sensors which have already been integrated in modern cars. The estimation method of lateral tire-road forces is based on an interacting multiple model (IMM) filter that integrates in-vehicle sensors of in-wheel-motor-driven electric vehicles to adapt multiple vehicle-road system models to variable driving conditions. Considering extended roll dynamics and load transfer, a four-wheel nonlinear vehicle dynamics model (NVDM) is built.

As a complicated phenomenon of friction-induced noise, brake frictional squeal has remained a challenge to automotive industry. So far, the generation mechanism of brake squeal has not been made clear, and the effective control measures have not been established. But the previous researchers found that the brake frictional squeal showed the time-varying characteristic obviously, but did not pay enough attention on it. In this paper, to avoid too many difficulties, which are caused by complex structures and numerous impact factors of brake system, a pin-on-disc system was established to study the generation mechanism and key impact factors of frictional squeal to investigate the time-varying characteristic of brake frictional squeal. In this paper, a series of tests on pin-on-disc system was carried out to study the time-varying frictional squeal. Through the frictional squeal rig test, brake frictional squeals were produced repetitively. During the rig test the frictional squeal, the contact forces and the acceleration of the pin end were sampled under various speed and loading force conditions, and the wavelet analysis, time-frequency analysis and feed-in energy calculation methods were used to investigate the time-varying characteristic of frictional squeal.

Brake noise is an emerging concern in Indian Auto-industry; with brake squeal being the most evident form of brake NVH. Squeal noise generation attributes to many parameters including kinematics of braking parts during pressure application, structural dynamic behavior which in turn depends on coupling at resonant frequencies of different parts of brake assembly, material of brake parts, operating clearances in the mating parts etc. The genesis of brake squeal lies in the generation of unstable frictional forces during braking event. These frictional forces induce uncontrolled amplification of brake parts vibration, which in turn tend to produce perceivable sound or noise. The magnitude this vibration induced squeal depends on co-efficient of friction, braking pressure, speed and temperature of friction material. It is known from typical squeal evaluations on dynamometer that at different temperatures of friction, the ability/ occurrence, of squeal is different, typically in the range of 50oC to 200oC.

This paper deals with grind noise in vehicles which is a low frequency vibration problem at 100~1kHz that appears in low brake pressures and extremely low speed where there is a transition from static to dynamic condition. Recently, the customer complaints have increased for grind and creep groan noise more than squeal noise. Low frequency brake noise is a combined effect of brake and suspension systems working with each other. The noise transmission path is also important. Experimental results are confirmed through ODS, Modal, TPA and 3D acoustic camera for noise transmission path. Finally, reduction methods of grind noise are presented.

Creep groan noise occurs in a stopped vehicle by the simultaneous application of torque to the wheel and the gradual release of brake pressure in-vehicle. It is the low frequency noise and giving the driver a very uncomfortable feeling. It is caused by the stick-sleep effect at the lining and disc interface. Recently, the field claim of low frequency creep groan has increased. And there is a lot of efforts to creep groan noise by means of modification of lining material. On this paper, Transfer path of creep goan noise was analyzed through ODS and TPA. Additionally the correlation between Source (Brake torque variation, Brake vibration) and Creep Groan Sound level wasdiscussed. Finally countermeasure to Creep Groan noise was suggested.

The ability to predict the noise and vibration of a gear train design is the most important to achieve the competitive design. The objective of this paper is to present development of process to predict the vehicle interior noise from gear train of electric parking brake. This process includes a flexible multibody dynamics simulation and a vehicle interior noise synthesis method using Transfer Path Analysis (TPA). The hybrid gear model is developed for efficient simulation to apply gear mesh excitations. It is modeled using the tooth stiffness and following real contact characteristics for gear-pair. The tooth stiffness is obtained by structural analysis for the FEM (finite element model). The multi-body model includes a flexible housing and shafts and a nonlinear bearing. Input forces at the mounting point of the gear train are calculated by dynamic analysis on the various operating conditions. The calculated force and vibration are used to make a synthesis for vehicle interior noise (structure-borne noise) and to use for acoustic simulation to predict radiation noise from a gear train.

Grease, when applied on the back plate and shim is commonly used not only in service shops but also in brake OEM suppliers to eliminate brake squeal. Both adhesive and clip-on shims with grease are broadly used to reduce brake squeal. Many studies have also been carried out to determine the effect of adhesive shims for brake squeal. However, there are few studies which have been carried out to investigate the effect of grease on clip-on shims for brake squeal. We conducted brake squeal tests with and without grease on clip-on shims and determined the effect of grease, and also made consideration regarding the effect of grease on clip-on shims for brake squeal.

Creep groan is a low-frequency (20-300Hz) self-excited brake vibration caused by stick-slip phenomena at the friction interface observed at very low vehicle speed. The creep groan propensity of friction materials is closely related with the difference (Δµ) between the static (µs) and the kinetic (µk) coefficients of friction. In this study, a laboratory-scale tribometer was used to investigate the influence of different types of abrasives and their physical properties in the stick-slip. A NAO brake pad material was used as base formulation and the abrasives tested were commercial black iron oxide, chromite, zirconium oxide, magnesium oxide and aluminum oxide. The results showed that abrasive particle size and hardness significantly affect the propensity of stick slip. Abrasives with high hardness showed relatively large stick-slip amplitudes in comparison to that with lower hardness. High propensity of stick-slip also was observed in tests considering samples with the same abrasive but with higher particle size.

The ratio of two forces acting respectively perpendicular and normal to a contact surface of two bodies, the so-called "coefficient of friction", is widely used in engineering and science depicting the friction resistance of materials sliding over one another under given conditions. In spite of this dimensionless quantity appears to be convenient for engineering and relatively easy to determine, the use of tabulated friction coefficients becomes somewhat an issue to predict friction behavior of mechanical systems. The system dependence of friction is sometimes ignored, leading to misapplication. Moreover, the fundamental origins of sliding resistance are not as clear and care should be taken when attributing to the friction coefficient a fundamental significance. This paper will review the results obtained on friction by Charles Augustin Coulomb and used for hundred of years [1]. Firstly enunciated in Leonardo da Vinci manuscripts [2], the proportionality of the friction force to the applied load and its independency of the apparent area of contact were noticed from experiences and proposed for generalization by Guillaume Amontons in 1699, known as the two-first friction laws [3].

Experts from industry and academia agree that brake squeal is an entirely nonlinear phenomenon. Consequently, using linear finite-element (FE) models and assessing the tendency of a brake system to squeal on the stability of the trivial solution is not appropriate. However, the latter approach - in the brake community known as complex eigenvalue analysis (CEA) - is extensively used in industry. Until now, nonlinear simulation approaches considering existence and stability of periodic solutions are limited to minimal models. Among the variety of reasons for this the complexity of large-scale nonlinear models as well as the identification of nonlinear material and system parameters are crucial. This contribution discusses the relevance of nonlinearities in friction brake noise, vibration, harshness (NVH) and presents a novel simulation approach for brake squeal. On the basis of experimental results it is pointed out that the consideration of nonlinearities in simulation as well as new methods for numerical studies are necessary to cope with the system-inherent phenomena.

As part of a comprehensive counterfeit mitigation effort, the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has created a program of four initiatives including the requirement of SigNature DNA marking on microcircuits. The Agency’s efforts began prior to the National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2012, Section 818. Also, in the April 26, 2013 memo from Under Secretary Frank Kendall, the Office of Secretary of Defense is clearly focused on “prevention and early warning,” as the “primary” defense against counterfeits. SigNature DNA marking is within the spirit and guidance set forth by both DLA and OSD. Section 818 compels government action and creates real liability for contractors. Among other provisions, Section 818 requires the government and contractors to establish “…policies and procedures to eliminate counterfeit electronic parts from the defense supply chain” and “…mechanisms to enable traceability of parts.” SigNature® DNA provides per part forensic traceability and can be implemented as part of a comprehensive inventory management system.
