This work describes an integrated method of 3D modelling algorithms with a modal approach in a multibody environment which provides a slimmer and more efficient simulation of flexible component contacts realistically reproducing system impacts and vibrations. A non-linear numerical model of the impulse contact forces based on the continuity approach of Lankarani and Nikravesh is developed. The model developed can evaluate deformation energy taking into account the material's characteristics, surface geometries and the velocity variations of the bodies in contact. ADAMS®-type modelling is applied to the sliding contacts of the links of a chain and its mechanical tensioner (“blade”) in the timing of an internal combustion engine. The blade was discretized by subdividing it into smaller components inter-connected with corresponding centres of gravity through 3D General Forces. Static and dynamic tests were performed to evaluate the stiffness, damping and friction parameters for the multibody model and to validate the methodology.

Abstract

This work describes an integrated method of 3D modelling algorithms with a modal approach in a multibody environment which provides a slimmer and more efficient simulation of flexible component contacts realistically reproducing system impacts and vibrations. A non-linear numerical model of the impulse contact forces based on the continuity approach of Lankarani and Nikravesh is developed. The model developed can evaluate deformation energy taking into account the material's characteristics, surface geometries and the velocity variations of the bodies in contact. ADAMS®-type modelling is applied to the sliding contacts of the links of a chain and its mechanical tensioner (“blade”) in the timing of an internal combustion engine. The blade was discretized by subdividing it into smaller components inter-connected with corresponding centres of gravity through 3D General Forces. Static and dynamic tests were performed to evaluate the stiffness, damping and friction parameters for the multibody model and to validate the methodology.
