Chapter10 clutches and_brakes

  1. 1. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Clutches and brakes Mechanical Design
  2. 2. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Aims • A clutch is a device that permits the smooth, gradual connection of two shafts rotating at different speeds. • A brake enables the controlled dissipation of energy to slow down, stop or control the speed of a system. • This section describes the basic principles of frictional clutches and brakes and outlines design and selection procedures for disc clutches, disc and drum brakes.
  3. 3. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Learning objectives At the end of this section you should be able to determine: • the primary dimensions for a single disc clutch, • the principal dimensions and number of discs for a multiple disc clutch, • torque capacity for short or long, internal or external brakes, • the configuration of a brake to be self- energising.
  4. 4. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Introduction • When a rotating machine is started it must be accelerated from rest to the desired speed. • A clutch is a device used to connect or disconnect a driven component from a prime mover such as an engine or motor.
  5. 5. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Automotive clutches • A familiar application is the use of a clutch between a car engine’s crankshaft and the gearbox. • The need for the clutch arises from the relatively high torque requirement to get a vehicle moving and the low torque output from an internal combustion engine at low levels of rotational speed. • The disconnection of the engine from the drive enables to engine to speed up unloaded to about 1000 rpm where it is generating sufficient torque to drive the transmission. • The clutch can then be engaged, allowing power to be transmitted to the gearbox, transmission shafts and wheels.
  6. 6. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Brakes • A brake is a device used to reduce or control the speed of a system or bring it to rest.
  7. 7. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Typical applications for a clutch and a brake MOTOR OR ENGINE COUPLING CLUTCH GEAR BOX COUPLING DRIVEN MACHINE MOTOR OR ENGINE BRAKE CONNECTION TO DRIVEN MACHINE
  8. 8. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Classification • Clutches and brakes are similar devices providing frictional, magnetic or mechanical connection between two components. • If one component rotates and the other is fixed to a non-rotating plane of reference the device will function as a brake and if both rotate then as a clutch.
  9. 9. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Force, torque and energy • Whenever the speed or direction of motion of a body is changed there is force exerted on the body. • If the body is rotating, a torque must be applied to the system to speed it up or slow it down. • If the speed changes, so does the energy, either by addition or absorption.
  10. 10. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Acceleration • The acceleration, α, of a rotating machine is given by • where • T is the torque (N m) and • I is the mass moment of inertia (kg m2). I T =α
  11. 11. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Mass moment of inertia • The mass moment of inertia can often be approximated by considering an assembly to be made up of a series of cylinders and discs and summing the individual values for the disc and cylinder mass moments of inertia.
  12. 12. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Mass moments of inertia • The mass moments of inertia for a cylinder and a disc are given by ( )4 i 4 ocylinder rrL 2 1 I −ρπ= 4 odisc Lr 2 1 I ρπ=
  13. 13. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Clutch or brake location • Torque is equal to the ratio of power and angular velocity. • In other words torque is inversely proportional to angular velocity. • This implies that it is usually advisable to locate the clutch or brake on the highest speed shaft in the system so that the required torque is a minimum. • Size, cost and response time are lower when the torque is lower.
  14. 14. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Friction clutches • Friction type clutches and brakes are the most common. • Two or more surfaces are pushed together with a normal force to generate a friction torque. • Normally, at least one of the surfaces is metal and the other a high friction material referred to as the lining. • The frictional contact can occur radially, as for a cylindrical arrangement, or axially as in a disc arrangement. ACTUATOR PUSHES DISCS TOGETHER INPUT OUTPUT DRIVING DISC DRIVEN DISC FRICTION MATERIAL
  15. 15. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Function • The function of a frictional clutch or brake surface material is to develop a substantial friction force when a normal force is applied. • Ideally a material with a high coefficient of friction, constant properties, good resistance to wear and chemical compatibility is required. • Clutches and brakes transfer or dissipate significant quantities of energy and their design must enable the absorption and transfer of this heat without damage to the component parts of the surroundings.
  16. 16. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Supply • With the exception of high volume automotive clutches and brakes, engineers rarely need to design a clutch or a brake from scratch. • Clutch and brake assemblies can be purchased from specialist suppliers and the engineer’s task is to specify the torque and speed requirements, the loading characteristics and the system inertias and to select an appropriately sized clutch or brake and the lining materials.
  17. 17. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Clutches • The function of a clutch is to permit the connection and disconnection of two shafts, either when both are stationary or when there is a difference in the relative rotational speeds of the shafts. • Clutch connection can be achieved by a number of techniques from direct mechanical friction, electromagnetic coupling, hydraulic or pneumatic means or by some combination.

  19. 19. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Requirements Clutches must be designed principally to satisfy four requirements: • the necessary actuation force should not be excessive, • the coefficient of friction should be constant, • the energy converted to heat must be dissipated, • wear must be limited to provide reasonable clutch life.
  20. 20. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Positive contact clutches • Positive contact clutches have teeth or serrations, which provide mechanical interference between mating components.
  21. 21. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Over-running clutches • Over-running clutches operate automatically based on the relative velocity of the mating components. • They allow relative motion in one direction only. • If the rotation attempts to reverse the constituent components of the clutch grab the shaft and lock up. • Applications include backstops, indexing and freewheeling. • The range of overrunning clutches the simple ratchet and pawl, roller, sprag and spring wound clutches.

  27. 27. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Clutch design • Clutches are rarely designed from scratch. • Either an existing design is available and is being modified for a new application or a clutch can be bought in from a specialist manufacturer. • In the latter case the type, size and the materials for the clutch lining must be specified. • This requires determination of the system characteristics such as speed, torque, loading characteristic and operating temperatures. • Many of these factors have been lumped into a multiplier called a service factor.
  28. 28. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Service factor • A lining material is typically tested under steady conditions using an electric motor drive. • The torque capacity obtained from this test is then de-rated by the service factor according to the particular application to take account of vibrations and loading conditions.

  32. 32. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Disc clutches • Disc clutches can consist of single or multiple discs. • Generally multiple disc clutches enable greater torque capacity but are harder to cool. • Frictional clutches can be run dry or wet using oil. • Typical coefficients of friction are 0.07 for a wet clutch and 0.45 for a dry clutch.
  33. 33. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Running a clutch wet • While running a clutch wet in oil reduces the coefficient of friction it enhances heat transfer and the potential for cooling of the components. • The expedient solution to the reduction of the friction coefficient is to use more discs and hence the use of multiple disc clutches.
  34. 34. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Assumptions • Two basic assumptions are used in the development of procedures for disc clutch design based upon a uniform rate of wear at the mating surfaces or a uniform pressure distribution between the mating surfaces. • The equations for both of these methods are outlined in this section.
  35. 35. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Elemental annular ring • The area of an elemental annular ring on a disc clutch is δA=2πrδr. • Now F=pA, where p is the assumed uniform interface pressure, so δF=2πrpδr. r rδ
  36. 36. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Normal force • For the disc the normal force acting on the entire face is • Note that F is also the necessary force required to clamp the clutch discs together. o i o i r r 2 r r 2 r p2rpdr2F π=π= ( )2 i 2 o rrpF −π=
  37. 37.

  38. 38. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Total torque • The total torque is given by integration between the limits of the annular ring, ri and ro: • This equation represents the torque capacity of a clutch with a single frictional interface.

  48. 48. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Design • Clutches are usually designed based on uniform wear. • The uniform wear assumption gives a lower torque capacity clutch than the uniform pressure assumption. • The preliminary design procedure for disc clutch design requires the determination of the torque and speed, specification of space limitations, selection of materials, and the selection of principal radii, ro and ri. • Common practice is to set the value of ri between 0.45ro and 0.8ro.
  49. 49. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Procedure The procedure for determining the initial geometry is itemised below. 1) Determine the service factor. 2) Determine the required torque capacity, T=power/ω. 3) Determine the coefficient of friction µ. 4) Determine the outer radius ro. 5) Find the inner radius ri. 6) Find the axial actuation force required.

  91. 91. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Drum brakes • Drum brakes apply friction to the external or internal circumference of a cylinder. • A drum brake consists of the brake shoe, which has the friction material bonded to it, and the brake drum. • For braking, the shoe is forced against the drum developing the friction torque. • Drum brakes can be divided into two groups depending on whether the brake shoe is external or internal to the drum. • A further classification can be made in terms of the length of the brake shoe: short, long or complete band.
  92. 92. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Short and long shoe internal drum brakes • Short shoe internal brakes are used for centrifugal brakes that engage at a particular critical speed. • Long shoe internal drum brakes are used principally in automotive applications. • Drum brakes can be designed to be self- energising. • Once engaged the friction force increases the normal force non-linearly, increasing the friction torque as in a positive feedback loop.
  93. 93. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Stability • One problem associated some drum brakes is stability. • If the brake has been designed so that the braking torque is not sensitive to small changes in the coefficient of friction, which would occur if the brake is worn or wet, then the brake is said to be stable. • If a small change in the coefficient of friction causes a significant change to the braking torque the brake is unstable and will tend to grab if the friction coefficient rises or the braking torque will drop noticeably if the friction coefficient reduces.

  133. 133. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Long Shoe Internal Drum Brakes • Most drum brakes use internal shoes that expand against the inner radius of the drum. Long shoe internal drum brakes are principally used in automotive applications. • An automotive drum brake typically comprises two brake shoes and linings supported on a back plate bolted to the axle casing. • The shoes are pivoted at one end on anchor pins or abutments fixed onto the back plate.

  135. 135. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Long Shoe Internal Drum Brakes • The brake can be actuated by a double hydraulic piston expander, which forces the free ends of the brake apart so that the non-rotating shoes come into frictional contact with the rotating brake drum. • A leading and trailing shoe layout consists of a pair of shoes pivoted at a common anchor point.
  136. 136. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Leading shoe • The leading shoe is identified as the shoe whose expander piston moves in the direction of rotation of the drum. • The frictional drag between the shoe and the drum will tend to assist the expander piston in forcing the shoe against the drum and this action is referred to as self- energising or the self- servo action of the shoe. c r 1 r 2 DRUM ROTATION RETRACTION SPRING ANCHOR PINS OR BRAKE LINING HYDRAULIC CYLINDER p SHOE LEADING TRAILING SHOE ABUTMENTS HEEL SHOE TOE SHOE θ θ
  137. 137.

  171. 171. Mechanical Design PRN Childs, University of Sussex Conclusions cont. • The detailed design of a clutch or braking system involves integration of a wide range of skills such as bearings, shafts, splines, teeth, flywheels, casings, frictional surfaces, hydraulics, sensors and control algorithms. • Both brakes and clutches can be purchased from specialist suppliers or alternatively key components such as brake pads or clutch discs can be specified and bought in from specialist suppliers and integrated into a fit for purpose machine design.
