Automatic Clutch Engagement Mechanism using Variable Speed One Way Damper
Abstract: So far, irrespective of all the advancements made in the automobile industry, there still persist a drawback in every Motor powered vehicles which comprises of a Clutch Unit. On a broader aspect, in order to get any geared vehicle moving in the 1st Gear from rest, the Clutch pedal must be slowly released so as to reach the Friction Point, where the clutch plate gradually engages with the flywheel and Pressure Plate simultaneously. If this point is not maintained for a set time duration and let the vehicle to traverse forward or if the clutch pedal is released with a jerk, the Inertia of Rest of the Clutch disk dominates over the applied Rotational torque of the flywheel. And this leads the flywheel to immediately stop, giving away the reactive rotational jerk to the clutch plate, and through the drive train, the whole vehicle. The following article will suggest possible improvements in the above mentioned problem of clutch engagement, and their Pros and Cons respectively.
