TEMPERATURE DISTRIBUTIONS IN AUTOMOTIVE DRY CLUTCHES

A numerical method that involves setting up equations to express the heat balance at every region in the clutch is used to determine the temperatures at various elements when band contact occurs between the rubbing surfaces during the operation of an automotive clutch. Temperature calculations have been made for contact areas of different band width on the two clutch facings and the results obtained compared with those attained when complete contact occurs. Both single and repeated engagements made at regular intervals are considered. /Author/TRRL/
