A theoretical and experimental study of drive-line torsional vibrations of a European saloon car is reported. Vibration histories, taken from a number of stations along the drive-line, and passenger compartment noise levels, were recorded in a series of road tests. Resonances were identified from spectral maps and order plots based on the results of digital analyses. A torsional resonance was identified as causing high noise levels in the car.
