Research on Influence of Flexible Parts’ Rigidity to Passenger Car Exhaust System’s Modal
The finite element modeling methods of a passenger car exhaust system’s flexible parts are introduced. A finite element (FE) model of the exhaust system is established with the finite element software and modal analysis of the FE Model is carried out. Through changing both automotive exhaust hangers’ Z direction of stiffness and bellows’ each direction of stiffness, the data of natural frequencies and vibrating modes of the exhaust system were obtained respectively. Comparing and analyzing the results indicates how the stiffness of exhaust hangers and bellows influences the modal of passenger cars’ exhaust system.
