Characteristics of Steering Wheel

Hello everyone;

I am hope everyone in a good day. I am Sabariah. PhD students focusing on vibration of automotive steering wheel. Honestly, I am lack on the application and have no knowledge about automotive and lack with the technical terms in automotive. Books in the library is not sufficient enough because they are more to academician while I want more to automotive industry. What are the issue now a days.

Therefore, here, I am seeking for your helps guys. I am looking for any magazines, or sources that can be used for me to reading up and know about the steering wheel. Especially in the problems of vibration at steering now a days.

Can anyone help me?

Re: Characteristics of Steering Wheel

First, visit my webpage on vibration, balance, and uniformity. It explains some issues about how tires (and wheels) affect things.

http://www.barrystiretech.com/unifandbal.html

Short version: Vehicle suspensions are primarily affected by the first harmonic of the uniformity of the rotating components. The first harmonic is the once per revolution component. It's the first harmonic because that harmonic is generally larger then the other harmonics.

What the suspension is reacting to is the resonant frequency of the spring/mass/damper system that is the suspension. Actually, there are 2 S/M/D systems - the suspension and the tire.

Some vehicles are more sensitive than others to these vibrations. I don't have enough experience to tell you what parameters are important except to say that the relative masses seem to pay a role - that heavier suspension components seem to help. This is, of course, the opposite direction that vehicles are going.

The steering wheel reacts to the front suspension, while the rear suspension is generally felt through the floor or the seat back.

Re: Characteristics of Steering Wheel

Chassis Design by Milliken will probably have info on it..
Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics by Gillespie might also.
I think both can be purchased thru SAE.
Have both books but can't check to make sure of their content, as I'm in Thailand and they're in Seattle.

SAE is a good resource.
Sometimes you can get E-books.
E-books or printed, it's pretty expensive stuff.
