A Process for Successful Design of Bonded Transmission Clutch Pistons 950766

To successfully design bonded transmission clutch pistons, it is necessary to understand the parameters that can cause the piston to fail. The failure modes are interference loss due to wear, swell or material set, pressure blowout, metal deflection, metal fatigue and frictional force. The design process described in this paper optimizes the piston against these failure modes ensuring a robust design that will exceed the customers' expectations.
