  • Multi–body dynamics analysis of power train judder oscillations considering aggregate dynamics

    Torsional oscillations in an open power train during start–up process are commonly called judder or clutch judder. Due to the rotational–translational coupling of tyres and body the longitudinal acceleration of the car passengers is, according to the appearing magnitudes, affected in a way that their driving comfort may be disturbed notably. Main subject of this paper is the ...

  • A DC-pulse power supply for plasma applications

    A DC-pulse power supply designed for plasma applications is presented in this paper. It consists of an H-bridge switching circuits and two DC sources. All pulse parameter values are set in a control panel developed with LabVIEW software. The designed panel adopts RS232 protocol to sequentially transmit the set parameter values to a low-cost 8-bit microcontroller, AT89C51. The microcontroller ...

  • Shift speed control in CVT powertrain

    Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is associated with a need to solve the problem of the selection of drive train ratio in the vehicle. For the case of a considerable range of the drive train ratio the power delivered to the driven wheels is affected by the mechanical inertia of the rotating mass associated with the crankshaft. The theoretical considerations in this paper as well as the ...

  • Vehicle power-train noise refinement using the Taguchi method

    This paper involves an introduction of an approach to reduce powertrain noise where the Design Of Experiments (DOE) has been implemented. Decoupling tests have been conducted on a test car to identify the engine noise transmission paths into the cabin. Under each coupling/decoupling combination, sound pressure levels at ear locations have been measured and evaluated in the second gear slow ...

  • How can insurance benefit from more effective training programmes: the case of behavioural mitigation

    The emergence of a broader spectrum of vulnerabilities (industrial accident, terrorism, sabotage, local conflict, natural disaster) seriously challenges the traditional approach to financing major risks and catastrophes. It is often said that insurance is a way of spreading risk and a way of encouraging investments in protective measures to reduce the likelihood of, and potential losses from, a ...
