Londhe, A., Yadav, V., Kannaiyan, S., Karthikeyan, K. et al., "Virtual Drivetrain Simulation Using Adams View and Correlation with Test," SAE Technical Paper 2016-01-1361, 2016, doi:10.4271/2016-01-1361.
Reducing the vibrations in the drivetrain is one of the prime necessities in today’s automobiles from NVH and strength perspectives. The virtual drivetrain simulation methodology to predict the driveline induced excitations transmitted to vehicle is developed for three cylinder engine using Adams View. The obtained mount forces from Adams dynamic simulation is correlated with the measured test data at vehicle level and the good correlation is observed. Paper discusses on the methodology of virtual drivetrain using Adams view and the correlation of measured dynamic mount forces with simulation results.This correlation gives the confidence that the developed simulation methodology can be used to get the mount forces of different orders from drivetrain.
