Clutch Plate Modelling And Analysis

  1. 1. MAE 477/577Final Project Poster Presentation<br />-Shreeganesh Sudhindra<br />&<br />Qaiser.J.Khan<br />
  2. 2. Project Description<br />Objective : <br />To model a Single Dry Clutch Plate assembly<br />To perform the Structural Analysis of the Contact Surfaces (Fly Wheel and Clutch Plate)<br />To perform a modal analysis of the Clutch Plate (Natural Frequencies and Mode Shapes)<br />
  3. 3. Model Assembly<br />
  4. 4. Exploded View <br />
  5. 5. Cross Sectional View <br />
  6. 6. Structural Analysis<br />Objective<br /> To calculate the total deformation, Von-Misses stress, frictional stress and pressure experienced on the contact region.<br />To mesh the components and apply the loads.<br />Perform a Mesh convergence study.<br />
  7. 7.
  8. 8. Model the contact region between clutch plate and the fly wheel<br />
  9. 9. Mesh For academic reasons a free mesh with constant strain triangular elements was used although it is not advisable to do so.<br />
  10. 10. Constraints and Loads <br />
  11. 11. Results<br />
  12. 12. Results (Continued) <br />
  13. 13. Mesh Refinement Studies<br />
  14. 14. Conclusion<br />ProE software package was used to model the entire assembly.<br />Ansys Work Bench was used to perform the above mentioned analysis successfully.<br />The maximum stresses of the assembly were found to be well within yield limits for the given loads and material properties.<br />In this project the capabilities of Pro Engineer and Ansys Work Bench software package was explored.<br />
