Abstract:
The door performance of an automobile is gauged not only by its function but also the “feel” of operating a door which majorly depends upon opening/closing force and closing speed. This feel is in direct relation to the soundness of design and the build quality which the customer experiences even before driving the vehicle.Several studies have been conducted for door open/close performance for a conventional swing door, however little has been done in direction of sliding door. In this paper an analysis of closing speed of manually operated sliding door in purview of various parameters affecting them and their individual and combined contribution at vehicle level is presented. As the closing locus of sliding door is different from a swing door, a special experimental setup is used to measure the closing speed of sliding door.
