Dynamics Optimization for the Valve Train of a Diesel Engine
The parameterized multi-body system dynamics model of the valve train of a diesel engine is built in ADAMS. The spring stiffness, spring force, valve mass and valve stiffness are set as experimental factors, and valve seat force and maximum acceleration are set as responses. Dynamic simulation experiments are carried out using design of experiment (DOE) method, from which the notable factors are obtained. The functions of response surfaces on notable factors are gotten, and then optimization design is implemented based on response surfaces.
