Clutch plate simulation

I have been trying to simulate clutch system to understand the combined effect of speed and torque input. How to setup torque and speed to the component along with normal force.

I think that you need to compute a time-domain solution... good luck because it is quite an hard work!

If there is a stick-and-sleep  effect there are also a lot of non-linearities -> you need a nonlinear solver.

 

Can you describe in details what you are looking for with your analysis?

Thanks for your response. I want to analyze multiplate clutch used in our product. In that regard, i have been starting the analysis with simple analogy.
