Simulation of Hydraulic Clutch in Automobiles for Torque Transfer during Slipping
Naveen Kumar S N
Abstract: Automobiles are the major mode for the transportation, in this current era. Due to the technological advancements there were lot of new upgrades, new safety features available which comforts the driver and also the passengers. In automobiles the chemical energy of the fuel is converted to mechanical energy in engines as the rotation of the crankshaft. And the power developed in the engine in the form of rotation of the shaft is transferred to the wheels, through transmission or gearbox. The clutch is the key element which engages or disengages the crankshaft to the transmission. In an automobile the function of clutch is to connect and disconnect the engine with the transmission system in a vehicle. Such that the torque produced in the engine is transferred to the wheels of an automobile whenever it is necessary through the transmission. Either mechanical actuators, hydraulic actuators were used in automobiles. Simulation of clutch system gives idea of the transfer of the force from the clutch pedal to the force at the clutch disc and the torque that can be transferred through the clutch. This paper concentrates on simulation of hydraulic clutch of the automobile from clutch pedal force to the torque transferred through the friction clutch.
