Title: Analysis of crankshaft–crankcase interaction for the prediction of the dynamic structural response and noise radiation of IC engine structures
Authors: Gruenert, Thomas
Issue Date: 2000
Publisher: © T. Grünert
Abstract: This thesis presents research work which is concerned with the development of analytical and numerical methods for the dynamic analysis of the crankshaft-crankcase assembly. The effects of interaction of crankshaft and crankcase on the dynamic response of an IC engine block structure are studied. These methods are especially attractive for the simulation of the steady state response of rotating systems with many degrees of freedom which are forced by multiple periodic excitations. A major novelty of the methods is the ability to model the system non-linearities successfully as frequency dependent properties. [Continues.]
