Modeling Vibration and Noise in a Gearbox: CMS Version
Application ID: 103211
This example illustrates the modeling of vibration and noise in a 5-speed synchromesh gearbox of a manual transmission vehicle. A transient multibody analysis is performed to compute the gearbox vibration for the specified engine speed and external load. The normal acceleration of the gearbox housing is converted to the frequency domain and used as a source of noise. An acoustics analysis is then performed in order to compute the sound pressure levels in the near, far, and exterior fields.
This example is essentially the same as Modeling Vibration and Noise in a Gearbox, but with the flexible gearbox housing reduced to a computationally efficient reduced-order model (ROM) using the Component Mode Synthesis (CMS) technique.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license.
