Drag and Cooling Characteristics of Circular Pin-Fin Groove Pattern of a Multi-plate Clutch Pack Using CFD 2018-01-0387

A numerical analysis of drag torque and cooling characteristics of a Multi-plate clutch pack with a circular pin fin shaped groove pattern is presented in this article. Simulations were performed using Simerics MP® platform to investigate the drag torque and heat transfer under various operating conditions. The performance characteristics of the circular pattern were later compared with various designs from the literature. Some of the groove pattern designs considered have been commonly used in transmission systems and some are from the patent literature. This study compares each design and later proposes the most efficient, that has the least drag and highest heat transfer characteristics.
