New Vibration Model to Analyze the Correlation of Components in the Washing Machine Suspension System
This paper presents the new vibration model of the horizontal washing machine (HWM) using a nonlinear geographic of the suspension system with nonlinear friction force - velocity (F-V) relationship of dampers obtained from experiment. Furthermore, using the dissipated energy function of dampers (Ed) criteria, some results of the effect of the spring stiffness on the dampers’ loading level are achieved. The simulation was done in Matlab/Simulink® environment. The results were then compared with experimental validation results to determine the suitability of the model. The conclusions can provide some available evidences for the design and improvement of nonlinear dampers.
