# Clutches and Brakes

##  A clutch differs from a brake in the fact that a

brake connects a moving member to a
stationary frame whereas a clutch connects one
moving member to another.

##  The driver and the driven parts are connected

or disconnected by clutch they are at rest or at
motion.
Friction-based machines

##  Issues of concern in engineering of these

devices:
Force, Torque, Energy loss and Δtemperature

##  Practical design/performance criteria:

Torque, Friction, Wear

Failure criteria:
Maximum temperature and Maximum pressure
Classification
They are classified as follows :

Friction clutch:

 Disc clutch
 Multi disk clutch
 Cone clutch

Clutches & Brakes

## 1- Torque required to accelerate or decelerate the system.

2- Time required to accomplish the system change.
3- The cycling rate: No. of on/off.
4- The environment of the system, temp, pressure, cooling.
5- The inertia of the system.
6- Energy dissipated.
7- Physical size configuration.
8- Actuating means (mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic).
9- Life & reliability & availability.

Clutches
 Purpose of the Clutch
Purpose of the Clutch
 Allows engine to be disengaged from
transmission for shifting gears and
coming to a stop
 Allows smooth engagement of engine to
transmission

Friction disks

 Torsional springs
 Can be spring or rubber
 Dampen power impulses from crankshaft
Clutch disks
Friction material isn’t very thick.
Minimum thickness around .012”
Pilot Bushing or bearing

Throw out T/O Bearing (release bearing)

##  Slides on transmission input shaft

bearing retainer

Throw out T/O bearings
 Most need clearance between fingers of
pressure plate so it isn’t spinning all the time
(free play)
 Riding the clutch (foot resting on pedal)
 Pushes T/O bearing into pressure plate fingers
 Causes it spin constantly
 Wearing it out too soon
 Releases some of clutch spring pressure
 Causing clutch to slip

1-Disc Clutch or Plate Clutch
 The amount of torque transmitted depends upon
the axial pressure, the radius of the friction surfaces and
the coefficient of friction.
 Multiple plate clutch is used whenever heavy loads are to
be transmitted.
 Analysis of the torque in single plate clutch:
 Let R = outer radius of the plate,
 r = inner radius of the plate,
 p = intensity of pressure,
 Fa = total axial load.
Uniform wear vs. uniform
pressure
 Uniform wear → p v = constant? → Longevity
 p (ωr1 ) =pa (ωar)

In clutch ω=ωa
Then: p r1 = pa r
 p r = Constant
 Uniform pressure? → Performance
 p =pa
