Gyroscopically Induced Failure in Multiple Disc Clutches, Its Causes, Its Characteristics and Its Cures 690066

The paper explains a failure commonly called “clutch plate flutter” and presents the developed cures. The complete theoretical and practical cases are detailed with mathematics, illustrations, and explanations. It is concluded that flutter is gyroscopic in origin, can be defined mathematically, occurs only in counter-rotating clutches, and can be eliminated by minor design innovations requiring no additional parts.
