Influence of In-Plane and Out-of-Plane Ultrasonic Oscillations on Sliding Friction

SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars - Mechanical Systems

Technical University Berlin-Elena Teidelt, Valentin Popov, Jasminka Starcevic

Vibrations of varying frequency and amplitude are used in many technological areas to control friction. In this study we report the most comprehensive results of high precision measurements of the sliding friction as a function of ultrasonic oscillations. The friction force between a steel plate and a steel sample oscillating in sliding direction, perpendicular to the sliding direction, and perpendicular to the sliding plane at a frequency of 30-50 kHz has been studied.We have found that for dry friction in the absence of vibrations, it is characteristic that the frictional force slightly decreases as the velocity increases. The friction coefficient is a monotonically decreasing function of the sliding velocity. However, it will be shown, that if we excite the system using ultrasonic oscillations with an amplitude of about 0.1 μm, the frictional force becomes a monotonically increasing function of the sliding velocity. This effect can be used to suppress frictionally induced instabilities and thus might be used as a mechanism to suppress braking noises. Additionally it is shown that the friction coefficient is significantly decreased…

This paper will outline the technical challenges experienced and the engineering methods used to overcome them during the endeavor to reduce wheel hub units mass and friction. Results achieved by the project team are significant and have meaningful contributions both to the unsprung mass, inertia and rolling resistance reduction. These features directly enable fuel consumption reduction and related CO2 emissions as well as positively influencing vehicle dynamics.Paper will handle two separate subjects of weight reduction and drag related power loss improvement and their combined effect at vehicle level. It will provide both simulated and test measured data as well as the validation of various features.In the very near future every milligram of CO2 reduction will count. To achieve significant improvements engineers have to think out of the box, develop breakthrough technologies and sometimes totally rewrite the rule book. This paper will outline how the project engineers have approached the problem, used modeling techniques to simulate various solutions, conducted technology scouting, selected new technologies, prototyped and fully validated robust products.

  • 2011-01-2379
Published 2011-09-18 by SAE International in United States
There has to be a good co-relation/ relationship between the pedal effort applied, pedal travel, deceleration level achieved and stopping distance for “good brake feel”. Brake feel also depend upon the time lag between the force applied on brake pedal and the response of braking system. Hence “brake feel” can be improved by reducing the response time of the brake system. Many vehicles are having “poor brake feel” complaints, pertaining to the above mentioned reasons.This paper relates to an improved brake system for automobile in which reduction in reaction time was done by artificially increasing differential pressure head across vacuum booster diaphragm.Brake booster is given an input of compressed air to the valve body during actuation, thereby increasing the differential pressure across the diaphragm. The compressed air is bled from turbocharger-intercooler of the vehicle which is stored in a reservoir, with one way valve, while cruising. However, same compressed air is utilized by the brake booster during brake application. Additionally, the compressed air reservoir acts as a cooler for stored air.By virtue of this mechanism,…

A Study of Parking Brake Cable Efficiency as Affected by Construction Type

SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars - Mechanical Systems

Chrysler Group LLC-Paul Stoloff
  • Journal Article
  • 2011-01-2380
Published 2011-09-18 by SAE International in United States
This paper studies the effects of various types of parking brake cable construction on parking brake system efficiency. Testing was conducted on a variety of common cable constructions from several industry sources. Cable construction variables include different types of conduit and wire strand. Input travel, input force, output travel, and output force were carefully measured under controlled conditions. Force, travel and hence work efficiencies were calculated and analyzed to identify any differences that might exist under the defined test conditions. Conclusions were drawn that might provide direction for improving parking brake system designs that have performance issues caused by poor cable efficiency.

Spatially Resolved Temperatures in Inhomogeneous and Continuously Changing Disk Brake Interfaces

SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars - Mechanical Systems

TU Braunschweig-Kai Bode, Georg-Peter Ostermeyer

Widely known is the fact that friction and wear characteristics of disk brakes are subject to pronounced temperature dependencies. For systems with organically bound brake pads, many thermally induced material changes can occur, ranging from degassing of the phenolic resin binder up to degradation of fibers and melting of metallic components. All these effects modulate the surface structure between pad and disk. They are a major contributor to friction layer dynamics [1] and directly influence the system's performance.Concerning the calculation of contact temperatures in disk brakes, several attempts have been made in the past. Most of them, however, use drastic assumptions (e.g. homogenous materials and ideal contact), which limit the results to qualitative approximations [2]. Recent studies already include the multi-material structure of brake pads. These give indications on how material mixtures must be changed, in order to modify contact temperatures into a certain direction [3].This paper goes one important step further and introduces a numeric model, which is also capable to account for dynamic changes of the surface topography and chemistry during the actual…

Effect of Directional Surface Finish of Brake Discs on Friction Behavior During Running-in

SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars - Mechanical Systems

KIRIU Corp.-Toshikazu Okamura
  • Journal Article
  • 2011-01-2382
Published 2011-09-18 by SAE International in United States
This paper focuses on the interaction in friction behavior between the surface texture of brake discs, rotational directions in braking operations and metal-cutting process, and friction materials with different degrees of aggressiveness. A factorial experiment for front brake discs was conducted by combining eight discs with directional surface finishes, two rotational directions, and two NAO friction materials on a brake dynamometer. The author analyzed several test results, such as the friction coefficients, disc wear, roughness, and the correlation between them. An assumed mechanism describing the friction behavior is discussed using the experimental results and by introducing the contribution of the aggressiveness and adhesiveness to the friction and confirmed by the test results.

Thermal Characterization of a Li-ion Battery Module Cooled through Aluminum Heat-Sink Plates

SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars - Mechanical Systems

  • Journal Article
  • 2011-01-2248
Published 2011-09-13 by SAE International in United States
The temperature distribution is studied theoretically in a battery module stacked with 12 high-power Li-ion pouch cells. The module is cooled indirectly with ambient air through aluminum heat-sink plates or cooling plates sandwiched between each pair of cells in the module. Each of the cooling plates has an extended cooling fin exposed in the cooling air channel. The cell temperatures can be controlled by changing the air temperature and/or the heat transfer coefficient on the cooling fin surfaces by regulating the air flow rate. It is found that due to the high thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of the cooling plates, heat transfer of the cooling plate governs the cell temperature distribution by spreading the cell heat over the entire cell surface. Influence of thermal from the cooling fins is also simulated. It is observed that cell temperature gradients are strongly influenced by the heat transfer resistance of the cooling plate and changes in the cooling air temperature shift the cell temperatures up or down without impacting the cell temperature distribution. It is shown in…

An Analysis of a Lithium-ion Battery System with Indirect Air Cooling and Warm-Up

SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars - Mechanical Systems

Ideal operation temperatures for Li-ion batteries fall in a narrow range from 20°C to 40°C. If the cell operation temperatures are too high, active materials in the cells may become thermally unstable. If the temperatures are too low, the resistance to lithium-ion transport in the cells may become very high, limiting the electrochemical reactions. Good battery thermal management is crucial to both the battery performance and life. Characteristics of various battery thermal management systems are reviewed. Analyses show that the advantages of direct and indirect air cooling systems are their simplicity and capability of cooling the cells in a battery pack at ambient temperatures up to 40°C. However, the disadvantages are their poor control of the cell-to-cell differential temperatures in the pack and their capability to dissipate high cell generations. In contrast, the advantages of direct and indirect liquid cooling systems are their good control of the maximum cell temperature and maximum differential cell temperatures in the pack and their capability of dissipating high cell heat generations with good thermal uniformity. However, high ambient temperatures…

A new approach is proposed to solve for the eigen-values and eigen-functions of circular plates with circular holes by using the Rayleigh Ritz Method. In this method, the spatial solution is expanded into separable functions in terms of polar coordinates. While trigonometric functions are used along the circumferential direction, the Boundary Characteristic Orthogonal Polynomials build the radial shape functions. Written in terms of the assumed functions, the potential and kinetic energies are modified in order to account for the holes. Although the proposed approach is applicable for plates with different boundary conditions and different hole shapes, the free vibration of a clamped circular plate with circular holes is considered in the present study. The edges of the holes are free. Four different case studies are carried out. The results of the Rayleigh Ritz Method are compared with those available in the literature.

Dynamics of Coupled Nonlinear Hypoid Gear Mesh and Time-varying Bearing Stiffness Systems

SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars - Mechanical Systems

Univ of Cincinnati-Junyi Yang, Teik Lim
  • Journal Article
  • 2011-01-1548
Published 2011-05-17 by SAE International in United States
A new capability to analyze the dynamic interaction of nonlinear hypoid gear mesh characteristics and time-varying bearing stiffness is proposed. Both backlash nonlinearity and time-varying mesh parameters, such as mesh stiffness, mesh point and line-of-action, are included in the nonlinear hypoid gear mesh model. The time-varying bearing stiffness behavior due to the changing orbital position of rolling elements is also modeled. A practical application is studied to reveal the dynamic characteristics of the complex interactions. Dynamic simulation results show that dynamic mesh force is relatively insensitive to the temporal variation in the bearing stiffness. On the other hand, the dynamic bearing loads are affected significantly by the time-varying bearing stiffness, especially in the case of heavy drive torque load without the occurrence of jump response phenomenon. However, for the case of light load condition assuming time-invariant mesh parameters, the dynamic bearing loads are insensitive to time-varying bearing stiffness. The analysis also reveals that the presence of appropriate backlash nonlinearity can stabilize the parametric resonance caused by the time-varying bearing stiffness for the case of light…
