Study on the wet clutch friction interfaces for humid lubrication condition
2013 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
The friction influencing parameters also influence the wet clutch sliding surface conditions. The tribofilm formations as well as the chemical and mechanical degradation for frictional interfaces can be different for the choice of the lubricant conditions. The present investigations revealed the effects of water contamination in automatic transmission fluid (ATF) not only on the frictional performance, but also on the friction interfaces. The surface profiles of the tested separator plates, the EDS-SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy-Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy) analysis of the friction interfaces and optical microscopy for the used friction liners showed the difference in surface morphology, adsorption of additive elements, permeability and porosity for a humid clutch environment.
