NOISE AND VIBRATIONS OF ENGINES AND TRANSMISSIONS. CONFERENCE SPONSORED BY THE AUTOMOBILE DIVISION AND THE SCHOOL OF AUTOMOTIVE STUDIES OF THE INSTITUTION OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS. CRANFIELD INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, JULY 10-12, 1979

The conference dealt with the problem of environmental pollution caused by highway vehicles. The following papers covered legislation, fatigue failure, vibration related to wear and other problems relating to noise and vibrations in engines and transmissions: The transmission of piston forces to the mounts of an engine (Hodgetts, D and McDonald, AM); Fundamental knowledge of gear noise - A survey (Welbourn, DB); Using gratings in driveline noise problems (Daly, KJ and Smith, JD); a simulation method for the torsional vibration waveform of a crankshaft with a rubber damper (Wakabayashi, K, Niikura, T and Yamamoto, A); Some new results concerning parameters influencing piston slap in reciprocating machinery (Fujimoto, Y, Suzuki, T and Ochiai, I); A cad system for the analysis of vehicle driveline noise (Hedges, JL and Butler, KJ); Modern analysis techniques associated with gearbox and axle noise (Andrews, SA); A practical approach to truck noise reduction (Atkins, KA and Challen, BJ); An experimental study of vehicle driveline vibrations (Healy, SP, Heppenstall, T and Hodgetts, D).
