This paper concerns the experimental validation of an elastodynamic model of an external gear pump for steering systems in vehicles. The elastodynamic model takes into account the most important phenomena involved in the operation of this kind of machines. Two main sources of noise and vibration can be considered: pressure and gear meshing. An experimental apparatus has been set up for the measurements of the case accelerations and force components in operational conditions. The model was validated by comparison between simulations and experimental results concerning forces and moments: it deals with the external and inertia components acting on the gears, estimated by the model, and the reactions and inertia components on the pump case and the test plate, obtained by measurements. The validation is carried out comparing the level of the time synchronous average in the time domain and the waterfall maps in the frequency domain, with particular attention to identify system resonances. The validation results are globally satisfactory.

Abstract

This paper concerns the experimental validation of an elastodynamic model of an external gear pump for steering systems in vehicles. The elastodynamic model takes into account the most important phenomena involved in the operation of this kind of machines. Two main sources of noise and vibration can be considered: pressure and gear meshing. An experimental apparatus has been set up for the measurements of the case accelerations and force components in operational conditions. The model was validated by comparison between simulations and experimental results concerning forces and moments: it deals with the external and inertia components acting on the gears, estimated by the model, and the reactions and inertia components on the pump case and the test plate, obtained by measurements. The validation is carried out comparing the level of the time synchronous average in the time domain and the waterfall maps in the frequency domain, with particular attention to identify system resonances. The validation results are globally satisfactory.
