Gear Coupling Control Using Clutches
Methods for coupling and decoupling driveshafts using simple and complex clutches
An important requirement of a practical drivetrain is the ability to transfer rotational motion and torque among spinning components at different speeds and gear ratios. In general, a single set of gears is not sufficient to accomplish this transfer. Clutches allow the drivetrain to transfer motion, torque, and force at different gear ratios under manual or automatic control.
- Engage and Disengage Gears Using a Clutch
Model a simple gear and clutch coupling.
- Brake Motion Using Clutches
Bring a spinning driveline component to a controlled stop using a clutch.
- Automatic Transmission with a Dual Clutch
Model a vehicle with a dual-clutch transmission system.
