Clutches

Couple driveline axes with Coulomb friction

Simscape Blocks

Cone Clutch Friction clutch with conical plates that engage when normal force exceeds threshold
Disk Friction Clutch Friction clutch with disk plates that engage when plate pressure exceeds threshold
Dog Clutch Clutch with toothed plates that engage when plate teeth become enmeshed
Double-Sided Synchronizer Back-to-back dog-cone clutch pairs assembled symmetrically about a translational detent to provide smooth gear engagement
Logic-Controlled Clutch Friction clutch with binary input control
Synchronizer Cone clutch, dog clutch, and translational detent assembled to provide smooth gear engagement
Unidirectional Clutch Clutch that transmits power in a single direction
Fundamental Friction Clutch Friction clutch with kinetic and static-limit friction torques as inputs
