The contact pressure distribution between a rubber wiper blade and a glass windshield is a major factor for wiping performance. A modeling and simulation method has been developed to forecast the contact pressure distribution on a wiper blade. For modeling multi-body dynamics of an wiper linkage system and flexible nature of wiper blade, ADAMS and ADAMS/flex are employed. A simulation study has been also conducted to obtain contact pressure distribution. Comparison between simulation and measurement is provided to ensure fidelity of the model and the simulation method.
