Analysis of Dual Mass Flywheel Using Discrete Arcspring Model


Article Preview

This paper presents a discrete analysis approach to investigate performance of the DMF. An arcspring installed between the flywheels is modeled as n - discrete elements. Each element consists of mass, spring and nonlinear friction element. The nonlinear friction model is proposed to describe Stribeck effect and viscous friction depending on the relative sliding velocity. The DMF performance such as hysterisis characteristics are investigated by comparing the experimental result. In addition, the torque characteristics transmitted to the driveshaft are evaluated by comparing the test result from manual transmission bench tester. It is found that discrete DMF model described the automotive driveline behavior closely. It is also found that the friction characteristics of the arcspring depends on the relative sliding velocity between the friction surfaces, which varies depending on the relative position of the DMF arcspring.
