Abstract

The friction clutch is considered the essential element in the torque transmission process. In this paper, the finite element method is used to study the stresses and deformations for clutch system (pressure plate, clutch disc and flywheel) due to the contact pressure of diaphragm spring and the centrifugal force during the full engagement of clutch disc (assuming no slipping between contact surfaces). The investigation covers the effect of the contact stiffness factor FKN on the pressure distribution between contact surfaces, stresses and deformations. The penalty and Augmented Lagrangian algorithms have been used to obtain the pressure distribution between contact surfaces. ANSYS13 software has been used to perform the numerical calculation in this paper.
