Automotive engine mounts are used to protect engine from road irregularities and to isolate transmission of vibrations created by the engine which have a drastic effect on the noise generated inside the passenger cabin. Most common types of engine mounts are elastomeric and hydraulic mounts, the former having better vibration isolation characteristics whereas the latter displays better shock isolation. Elastomeric mounts are widely used for their low initial cost, while hydraulic mounts with inertia track and decoupler are chosen for their good vibration isolation and shock excitation characteristics. However, hydraulic mounts with inertia track and decoupler are not appropriate for small segment and commercial vehicles due to their high initial cost. In this paper, the effect of the addition of a dry friction damper on the performance of elastomeric automobile engine mounts is investigated. Results showed that addition of dry friction damping to the elastomeric engine mount significantly improves the transmissibility throughout a wide frequency range where the best results are obtained at the resonance frequency.

Effects of heat input on metallurgical behavior in HAZ of multi-pass and multi-layer welded IN-939 superalloy
Mashhuriazar, Amirhossein; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Sajuri, Zainuddin; Omidvar, Hamid (2021-11-01)
The hot components of a gas turbine are susceptible to damage in the high-temperature environment of turbine engine operation. Given that these components are relatively costly to manufacture, they are often repaired than replaced when damaged. Fusion welding is an economical method for repairing the damaged components of a gas turbine. This research examines the roles of heat input, pass number and layer number on the intergranular liquation cracking of the Inconel-939 (IN-939) precipitate nickel base supe...
Effect of Dry Friction Damping on the Dynamic Response of Helicopter Tail Shaft
Ozaydin, Onur; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2017-02-02)
Tail Drive Shaft of a helicopter transmits torque from the main gear box to the tail rotor and in most of the helicopter designs, tail shafts are designed to work in supercritical speeds. In order to limit resonance vibrations of the tail drive shaft, dry friction dampers can be used. Therefore, in order to study the effect of dry friction damping on the response of tail drive shaft, a mathematical model is developed. The tail drive shaft is modeled as a beam by using Euler-Bernoulli beam theory. Bearings s...
Compensation of Friction Effects in Gyro-Stabilized Motion Platforms
Sincar, Eyyup; Balkan, Raif Tuna; Platin, Bülent Emre (2015-07-03)
A frequent problem encountered in the stabilization of gyro-stabilized motion platforms is the disturbance rejection associated with moving components. Due to relative motion of adjacent components, friction is induced by the destabilizing force from the base motion to the stabilized object, degrading its motion accuracy. Hence, a compensation of frictional effects is necessary in order to obtain a highly precise stabilization performance. In this paper, applications of both single-state disturbance observe...
In-flight Ice formation simulation on finite wings and air intakes
Özgen, Serkan (2012-04-01)
In the present article, in-flight ice formation on finite wings and air intakes of low-speed aircraft are numerically studied. The approach to the problem involves calculation of the velocity field using a three-dimensional panel method. Using the calculated velocity field, the droplet trajectories and droplet impact locations are computed yielding the droplet collection efficiency distribution. In the next step, convective heat transfer coefficient distributions around the geometries are calculated using a...
