Dynamic Simulation and Test for the Valve Train Dynamics
This paper presents the development of a dynamic model of the valve train of one engine. During the parameter determination of the model, finite element method is used to calculate the contact stiffness of the cam-follower . The simulation results of the model are compared with measured data of the valve train at same speed. Excellent quantitative agreement is found between the numerical and experimental results and the validity of the dynamic model can be verified.
