Efficient method to solve large-scale eigenvalue problem in vibration is presented. NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) performance is an important quality measure of vehicles. Therefore, the reduction of vibration is one of the key considerations of new automatic transmission design. In addition, reduction of product design time is another important requirement. Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) is becoming a more important methodology to reduce product design time. However, computational time of eigenvalue problem takes long. We propose parallel eigenvalue computation (Sakurai-Sugiura method) for large-scale eigenvalue problems. This method has a good parallel scalability according to a hierarchical structure of the method. As the demonstrative problem, we consider large-scale computation of eigenvalue problem for AISIN AW FWD automatic transmission.
