Math Model to Simulate Clutch Energy During Vehicle Launch 2009-36-0401

The clutch system works basically as an interface between the engine and the vehicle. The engine provides power and torque in a given revolution while the vehicle launches.
The slip time is a critical moment for the clutch during vehicle launch. So, lots of studies have been done to predict the total slip time and related amount of energy during clutch engagement.
Considerations about this energy are highly important in clutch capacity analysis, and the studies available evaluate several aspects that take place during the slipping phase, where simple or complex models represent all dynamics involved in the related systems.
