A Study on Dynamic Performance of Deviation-Based Sliding-Door in Closed State


Article Preview

This paper presents a flexible deviation model of sliding-doors developed using influence coefficient method. By introducing the deviation factors such as seal strip reaction force and door’s dynamic deformation, the closed-loop relationship of size of the sliding-door system when it is in closed state is further established. Then based on the influencing relationship of the sliding-door deviation on the system flexibility and stiffness, the influence of the deviation on the door dynamic performance is obtained. Finally, through analyzing the frequency response of a real sliding-door, the optimal door deviation design is proposed and the effectiveness of the method is also verified.
