ABSTRACT

DESIGN STUDY OF MULTI PLATE CLUTCHES


A Clutch is a machine member used to connect the driving shaft to a driven shaft, so
that the driven shaft may be started or stopped at will, without stopping the driving shaft. A
clutch thus provides an interruptible connection between two rotating shafts. Clutches allow
a high inertia load to be stated with a small power.
The types of clutches can be classify by: The method of transmitting torque: Friction,
Hydraulic, Automatic, The method of control: anual, anual with booster, Automatic,
The method of creating force on pressure plate: !pring clutches "cylindrical, conical, and
disc springs#, !emi$centrifugal clutches "pressure is created simultaneously by springs and
centrifugal forces, Centrifugal clutches. The shape of friction surfaces: %isc, Cone "mainly
used as a secondary friction devices#, %rum "bloc&# "mainly use as a secondary friction
devices#, The number of driven plate "disc plate clutches#: !ingle$disc clutch, %ouble$disc
clutch, ulti$disc clutch "mainly used in automatic transmission#.
ulti 'late Clutch has several driving members interleaved or (stac&ed( with several
driven members. )t is used in race cars including F*, )ndyCar, +orld ,ally and even most
club racing, motorcycles, automatic transmissions and in some diesel locomotives with
mechanical transmissions. )t is also used in some electronically controlled all$wheel drive
systems.
)n our pro-ect we study the different types of clutches and design of multi plate
clutch.
