Abstract

Locomotive machine is the most important part of an automobile. Locomotive machine develops the power for auto mobile propulsion. Inertia of the moving parts and pressure forces developed inside the locomotive machine causes vibration of the locomotive machine. Damping of these vibrations is very important to prevent damage to the locomotive machine. Mounting systems must effectively dissipate these vibrations. The vehicle locomotive machine mounting system, generally, consists of a locomotive machine (vibration source) and several mounts connected to the vehicle structure. The modern locomotive machine mounting systems have been successfully used to isolate the driver and passenger from both noise and vibration generated by the locomotive machine the ideal locomotive machine mount should isolate locomotive machine vibration caused by locomotive machine disturbance force in locomotive machine speed range and prevent locomotive machine bounce from shock excitation. This implies that dynamic stiffness and damping of the locomotive machine mount should be frequency and amplitude dependent. Therefore the development of locomotive machine mounting system has mostly concentrated on improvement of frequency and amplitude dependent properties. Various locomotive machine mounting systems broadly used in automobiles can be classified into Elastomeric, Hydraulic, Semi-active and Active hydraulic mounts. In this paper a study of the locomotive machine mountings systems has been done.
