Abstract

Internal combustion engine cold test is becoming one of the main tests performed during the late stage of the product development for defects inspection using the torque signatures and pressure levels in various engine components. This paper includes a lumped masses model generated for the cold test torsional system to calculate the driveline natural frequencies with a high accuracy. Calculating the natural frequency of the system is crucial for avoiding resonance excitation during the testing phase. Eigen value problem was solved; the natural frequencies and the mode shapes were obtained. The natural frequencies of the model were compared with the measured natural frequencies and 95% accuracy is achieved.
