A new visco transmission has been incorporated in the powertrain of an all-wheel-drive vehicle. The torque characteristic, specially the torque progression of the visco coupling (called “humping”) is discussed. The influence of the silicone oil on the shear behavior is elaborated. Some aspects of drive dynamics affected by the visco transmission are added.
