A design model for predicting pressure drop in fluid-tuned mounts was developed. The model is based on an exact solution to the Navier-Stokes equations and has been made more general through the use of empirical coefficients. The values of these coefficients were determined by numerical simulation of the flow. Comparisons of the pressure drop and phase predicted by the model with a limited set of experimental data shows very good agreement. This paper shows how computational fluid dynamics can be used as a tool to help develop models for day-to-day design.
