A Linear Thermal Model for an Automotive Clutch 2000-01-0834

The paper presents a diaphragm spring clutch linear thermal model. The main model aim was to estimate the temperature on the clutch disc slipping surfaces. That objective was pursued through a linear model to overcome the memory and computing time problems required by models with a more complex structure. The model parameters were experimentally identified. The model was validated employing a test bench, considering shift transient different as far as energy dissipated, clutch disc wear, frequency of shifting, gearbox temperature. The model structure, the methodology adopted to identify the model parameters, the experimental results obtained are presented and discussed.
