Hydraulic chain tensioners have a remarkable influence on the dynamics of timing chains in automotive application. A failure of the tensioner may lead to a serious damage of the engine. The demands to the hydraulic chain tensioner are especially high at efficient low-friction engines. At present, several types of hydraulic chain tensioners, ranging from simple ones to complex ones, are available in the market. However, the dynamics of simple tensioners can be quite similar to the dynamical behavior of complex variants in a typical operation range, by choosing appropriate parameters. In this work done at the TU München, a design-to-cost strategy is proposed to design a hydraulic tensioner, which fits the dynamical demands at optimal costs. ...
