Dual-mass flywheels with tuned vibration absorbers for application in heavy-duty truck powertrains
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2020

As the heavy-duty combustion engine development goes towards lower rotational speeds and higher cylinder pressures, the torsional vibrations increase. There is therefore a need to identify and study new types of vibration absorbers that can reduce the level of torsional vibrations transmitted from the engine to the gearbox. In this work, the concept of a dual-mass flywheel combined with a tuned vibration absorber is analysed. The tuned vibration absorber efficiently reduces the vibration amplitudes for engine load frequencies near the tuning frequency, but it also introduces an additional resonance into the system. By placing the tuned vibration absorber on an intermediate flange between the two dual-mass flywheels, the introduced resonance frequency will be lower than the tuning frequency and a resonance in operating engine speed range can be avoided. Numerical simulations are used to show how the torsional vibration amplitudes in a heavy-duty truck powertrain are affected by the tuned vibration absorber and how the different parameters of the tuned vibration absorber and the dual-mass flywheel affect the torsional vibrations and the resonance frequencies.
