Analysis of Thermal Load for Dry Clutch under the Frequent Launching Condition 2013-01-0814

According to the structural features and working characteristics of the dry clutch, this study focuses on the factors that affect the performance and life of the dry clutch. The temperature rise caused by the clutch slipping was proved as the key factor. Dynamics model of the powertrain for the dry clutch in launching process was established, and friction work generated during the launching process was simulated and calculated. Based on the basic theory of heat transfer, this paper defined the boundary conditions of the temperature field and the finite element model for the dry clutch was built. The transient temperature field of the friction disk, temperature field changes under the frequent starting conditions and the effects of friction material on temperature rise were analyzed, and measures were proposed to reduce the temperature of dry clutch from its design, use and control.
