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.


Re: Clutch plate simulation


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?

Re: Clutch plate simulation

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.
