Abstract

There is very little literature regarding rubber dynamic simulations. In many engineering applications the dynamic analysis is normally not required. However there is more demanding requirement for quantitative specification of dynamic behaviour of rubber-to-metal bonded anti-vibration components. This case study is based on an engine installation where there is a need for understanding of the products complex stiffness and damping. Initially the model has been verified by quasi-static tests, followed by a dynamic test programme within a test laboratory. A three-dimensional finite element model has been developed to predict the natural frequencies and mode shapes for the product. At same time a steady state dynamic response from a damped harmonic input is also evaluated. Compared with the test result, it is concluded that the simulation is reliable and can be used in the proper design stage when dynamic characteristics are needed. © 2012 Taylor & Francis Group.
