ON NOISE AND VIBRATION FROM ENGINES TRANSVERSELY INSTALLED IN FRONT WHEEL DRIVE CARS

Concerning noise and vibration, a front wheel drive car with transversely installed engine has some problems that differ from a traditional configuration rear wheel drive car. As for the design of the engine mount system for transversely installed engine, the following items must be considered in relation to reciprocal requirements, vibration isolation and control of engine displacement for larger reaction torque. (1) optimization of engine mount stiffness (2) engine mount arrangement taking into consideration the acoustic and vibratory characteristics of the body structure (3) optimization of dynamic characteristics of engine mounting rubber materials.
