Generic methodology for modeling and simulation of vibration, wear and noise in electromechanical drivetrains

  • This work describes development of a comprehensive methodology for analyzing vibro-acoustic and wear mechanisms in transmission systems. The thesis addresses certain gaps present in the fields of structure dynamics and abrasion mechanism and opens new areas for further research. The paper attempts to understand new and relatively unexplored challenges like influences of wear on the dynamics of drive train. It also focuses on developing new techniques for analyzing the vibration and acoustic behavior of the drive unit structures and surrounding fluids respectively. The developed methodology meets the requirements of both the complete system and component level modeling by using specially identified combination of different simulation techniques. Based on the created template model, a three-stage spur plus helical gearbox is constructed and simulated as an application example. In addition to the internal mechanical excitation mechanisms, the transmission model also includes the rotational and translational dynamics of the gears, shafts and bearings. It is followed by illustration of wear among the rotating components. Different kinds of static and dynamic analyses are performed and coupled at various levels depending on the mechanical complexities involved. Furthermore, the structure dynamic vibration of the housing and the associated sound particle radiations are mapped into the surrounding fluid. Additionally, the approach for selection of the potential parameters for optimization is depicted. Final part focuses on the measurements of different system states used for validation of the model. In the end, results obtained from both simulations and experiments are analyzed and assessed for there respective performances.
