Driveline launch shudder is a second-order vibration phenomenon excited by the driveline system in vehicles. It is experienced as low-frequency tactile vibrations at the vehicle seat track and is further deteriorated by a high torque demand from the engine. These vibrations are unwanted and affect the vehicle ride quality. A virtual method has been developed in ADAMS/Car to simulate the driveline launch shudder event for solid axle suspension architecture vehicles. Detailed modeling of the full vehicle system with appropriate boundary conditions has been presented. The simulated driveline launch shudder event has been quantified in the form of axle windup and accelerations at the driveline pinion, center bearing and seat track locations. A physical test correlation case study has been performed to validate the developed virtual method. This virtual method is also successfully applied to provide a driveline launch shudder mitigation enabler to improve vehicle ride performance.
