Abstract

The high thermal stresses, generated between the contacting surfaces of the clutch system (pressure plate, clutch disc and flywheel) due to the frictional heating during the slipping, are considered to be one of the main reasons of clutch failure. A finite element technique has been used to study the transient thermoelastic phenomena of a dry clutch. The effect of the boundary conditions on the contact pressure distribution, the temperature field and the heat flux generated along the frictional surfaces are investigated. Analysis has been completed using two dimensional axisymmetric model that was used to simulate the clutch elements. ANSYS software has been used to perform the numerical calculation in this paper.
