Investigating Vibration Behavior of Cover Clutch of Passenger Automobiles

Authors(3) :-Kazem Reza Kashyzadeh, Sara Alipanah Kivi, Hamid-Reza Khodami

In the present article, main purpose is to determine natural frequencies and shape modes of cover clutch of different passenger cars (Tiba and Peugeot) by using finite element method (FEM). The simulations are carried out for two types of cars with free-free conditions in ANSYS WORKBENCH software. Results are presented as Tables and Diagrams stating natural frequencies of different automobiles and compared shape modes. The results indicate that natural frequencies Peugeot are upper than Tiba for materials st-14 and critical area on the both model is seat bolt.
