The term driveability describes the driver's complex subjective perception of the interactions with the vehicle. One of them is associated to longitudinal acceleration aspects. A relevant contribution to the driveability optimization process is, nowadays, realized by means of track tests during which a considerable amount of driveline parameters are tuned in order to obtain a good compromise of longitudinal acceleration response. Unfortunately, this process is carried out at a development stage when a design iteration becomes too expensive. In addition, the actual trend of downsizing and supercharging the engines leads to higher vibrations that are transmitted to the vehicle. A large effort is therefore dedicated to develop, test and implement ignition strategies addressed to minimize the torque irregularities. Such strategies could penalize the engine maximum performance, efficiency and emissions. The introduction of the dual mass flywheel is beneficial to this end. Nevertheless, its role on the vehicle driveability, as well as that of other driveline components, is not yet so clear. The aim of the present work is to establish which are the main driveline components affecting the filtering behavior of the transmission and how their parameters can be tuned in order to improve the vehicle ability to respond to driver’s different demands without negative impact on his comfort. A complete nonlinear coupled torsional and longitudinal vehicle dynamic model is proposed to this end. The model is validated both in time and frequency domain and allows linearization of its nonlinear components.
