Measuring Friction of Single and Multiple Wrap Transmission Bands 680424
This is a report of the status of the development of a Band Friction Test Machine that will measure friction of automatic transmission band-drum combinations used in current production passenger cars. The fixture’s operating requirements are described, along with a detailed listing of its features. The test procedure and test data from a prototype machine are discussed. It is hoped that this machine will enable greater correlation of data in this area.
