Title: OPTIMIZED ARRANGEMENT OF THE PENDULUM MASSES OF A CENTRIFUGAL PENDULUM
Abstract:
The invention relates to a centrifugal pendulum (21) of a torsional vibration damper, which contains a dual-mass flywheel (1), of a powertrain of an internal combustion engine-driven vehicle. Bow springs (6, 7) of the dual-mass flywheel (1) are operatively connected to flange blades (10) of at least one support flange (9). The support flange (9) is paired with least two adjustable pendulum masses (22 - 25) which move relative to the support flange (9) in the event of an occurring rotational irregularity under the effect of the centrifugal force. The pendulum masses (22 - 25) can be adjusted in connection with pendulum rollers (14) which are guided in roller tracks (15, 16) of the pendulum masses (22 - 25) and of the support flange (9), said tracks running opposite one another. The pendulum masses (22 - 25) are positioned on the support flange (9) in an offset manner relative to the flange blades (10).
