Measurements on complete vehicle / vehicle dynamics
Problem: Dynamic and acoustic problems, resonances
Goal: Support for optimal design of the drive train, noise reduction
A holistic view is necessary for the evaluation and optimization of the vehicle. Dynamic effects, acoustic behavior, influences on driving behavior and interactions in the system context should be considered. To be more precise, torsional vibration excitations, mass inertias, stiffnesses and damping behavior of the components play an important role in the dynamic design of the powertrain. They can cause resonances and dynamic problems that affect component life. Another important development objective is noise reduction in clutches, transmissions, and drive shafts. Therefore, an in-depth investigation of the interactions of the individual components is essential.
In the figure, a multi-channel speed measurement using magneto-resistive sensors and laser sensors, for example on cardan shafts (KW), drive shafts (AW), couplings (K0, K1), electric motors (E0-4) and transmissions, in combination with analog measured variables such as accelerations and sound pressure, provides a comprehensive overall picture of the vibration behavior of the powertrain. The recorded measured values are evaluated in the time and spectral domain. The acoustic behaviour is also analyzed.
Furthermore ROTEC ENGINEERING provides you with support and technical engineering know-how for problems related to vibration analysis of engines, transmissions and drive trains.
