Vibration dynamics in non-linear dual mass flywheels for heavy-duty trucks
Paper in proceedings, 2018
A non-linear model for simulations of a dual mass flywheel (DMF) for heavy-duty applications is proposed. The model includes internal clearances and friction. LuGre friction model is used, which depends on normal force, relative velocity between the two surfaces and an internal deflection variable. Measurements on the DMF are performed in a test rig and the test rig properties are analysed. The correlation shows that the general behaviour of the DMF is reproduced by the proposed simulation model. The viscous part of the friction is dominant for the analysed cases with zero mean torque, and a conventional Coulomb friction model would not suffice for this application. Near resonances, the model also shows a high sensitivity to internal clearances and spring stiffness. This indicates that correlation could be improved further if the static stiffness was measured with good accuracy for the relevant range of deflection angles.
