A Technical Review on Design of Cupped Spring Washer in Automobile Clutch

Akash Shukla, Tirth Darji, Sumit Gupta, Jeffin Joy

Abstract


In current scenario, in automotive industry, in clutch division, major challenge is to reduce the rattling noise and vibration. Thus most of the industries are adopting the concept of controlling hysteresis by virtue of introducing the cupped washer design in clutch disc assembly. In this project, we will model the cupped washer based on the size and geometry of the clutch, and carry out calculations of load and deflection to achieve the targeted hysteresis of disc assembly by which vibration and rattling noise in running vehicle can be minimized. This technical review paper deals with the study of Belleville spring washer as well as different washers and clutch assembly. This review paper helps in understanding various parameters that are involved in the designing of cupped spring washer. The results of the various researches in same field have been analysed and studied.
