  3. 3. TRANSMISSION SYSTEM INTRODUCTION  Transmission system is the system by means of which power developed by the engine is transmitted to the road wheels to propel the vehicle.  In automobiles the power is developed by the engine which is in turn used to turn the wheels. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  4. 4. REQUIREMENT OF TRANSMISSION SYSTEM  To provide for disconnecting the engine from the driving wheels.  When the engine is running, to enable the connection to the driving wheels to be made smoothly and without shock.  To enable the leverage between the engine and driving wheels to be varied.  It must reduce the drive-line speed from that of the engine to that of thedriving  Turn the drive, if necessary, through 90° or perhaps otherwise realignit.  Enable the driving wheels to rotate at different speeds.  Provide for relative movement between the engine and driving wheels. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  6. 6. The functions of the components are as follows  Clutch is used for disconnecting the engine from the driving wheels and it must also enable the driver to connect the engine.  Gearbox is to enable the driver to change the leverage between the engine and driving wheels to suit the prevailing conditions gradient, load, speed required, etc.  Propeller shaft transmits the drive on to the back axle  Universal joints at its ends allow both the engine-and-Gearbox assembly and the back axle to move relative to one another, as their spring elements deflect. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  7. 7.  Sliding joint accommodates variations in length of the propeller shaft as its rear end rises and falls vertically with the back axle.  Differential gearing, which shares the driving torque equally between the two road wheels  Transfer box is to transfer the power and torque from the main gearbox to both the front and rear axles. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  8. 8. CLUTCH  A clutch is a releasable coupling connecting the adjacent ends of two coaxial shafts. It is said to be engaged or, in, when the shafts are coupled, and disengaged, or out, when they are released.  Mechanical clutches fall into two main categories: 1. Positive engagement 2. Progressive engagement. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  9. 9.  Positive engagement, so that no torque can be transmitted from the driving to the driven shaft, or positively engaged, in which case the shafts rotate together, connected by some mechanical devices such as splines, keys or dogs.  Progressive type is gradually engaged, so that the speed of the driving shaft falls while, simultaneously, that of the driven shaft rises from its initial stationary state until both are rotating at equal speeds. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  10. 10. FUNCTIONS OF CLUTCH • To permit engagement or disengagement with gear box • To transmit the engine power to the rear wheals smoothly without shock. • It should dissipate the heat produced due to friction contact • It should be dynamically balanced to the vibration in the transmission system. • To permit the engaging of the gears when the vehicle is in motion without damaging the gear wheels.

ADVANTAGES  Gear changing is very much simplified.  Reduction in gear wear occurs.  It allows the usage of helical gears that runs quickly.  The design is very much complex.  Initial cost is high  Quick change of gears occurs due to noise of crashing. DISADVANTAGES Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  66. 66. AUTOMATIC GEARBOX  Most modern automatic gearboxes have a set of gears called a planetary or epicyclic gear train.  In ordinary gearing, the axes of the various gears are fixed. These gears are simply rotated about their axes.  A planetary gear set consists of a central gear called the sun gear, an outer ring with internal gear teeth (also known as the annulus, or ring gear), and two or three gears known as planet gears that rotate between the sun and ring gears.  The drive train is coupled to a mechanism known as a torque converter, which acts as a fluid drive between the engine and transmission.  If the sun gear is locked and the planets driven by the planet carrier, the output is taken from the ring gear, achieving a speed increase. EPICYCLIC GEARBOX Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  67. 67. EPICYCLIC GEARBOX…..  If the ring gear is locked and the sun gear is driven, the planet gears transmit drive through the planet carrier and speed is reduced.  With power input going to the sun gear and with the planet carrier locked, the ring gear is driven, but transmits drive in reverse.  To achieve direct drive without change of speed or direction of rotation, the sun is locked to the ring gear and the whole unit turns as one.  The same effect can also be achieved by locking the planet gears to the planet carrier.  Most automatic gearboxes have three forward speeds, and use two sets of epicyclic gears. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  68. 68. EPICYCLIC GEARBOX…..  The locking sequences of the epicyclic gear train are achieved by hydraulic pressure operating brake bands or multi-plate clutches.  The bands are tightened round the ring gear to prevent it turning, and the clutches are used to lock the sun gear and planets.  The correct sequence of pressure build-up and release is controlled by a complex arrangement of hydraulic valves in conjunction with sensors that respond to engine load, road speed and throttle opening.  A mechanism linked to the throttle - known as a kick down - is used to effect a change-down for rapid acceleration. When you press down the accelerator suddenly to its full extent, a lower gear is selected almost instantly.  Most automatic gearboxes have an override system so that the driver can hold a low gear as required.

Hence dos clutches or sliding gears are not used.  It is distributed over several gears wheels instead of having the load on only one pair of gears.  A greater area of gear tooth contact can be obtained due to distribution of loads. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  76. 76. TRANSFER BOX  A transfer box is interposed between the gearbox and back axle unit. The function of transfer box is to transfer the drive from the main gearbox to both the front and rear axles. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET

  81. 81. FLUID FLYWHEEL  A fluid coupling or hydraulic coupling is a hydrodynamic device used to transmit rotating mechanical power. It has been used in automobile transmission as an alternative to a mechanical clutch.  It couples the driving member with driven member through a media of fluid. Two turbines (fan like components):  One connected to the input shaft; known as the pump or impellor, primary wheel input turbine  The other connected to the output shaft, known as the turbine, output turbine, secondary wheel or runner Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET

  88. 88. TORQUE CONVERTER  A torque converter is a device which performs a function similar to that of a gearbox.  But whereas a gearbox provides only a small number of fixed ratios the torque converter provides a continuous variation of ratio from the lowest to the highest.  Torque converters all consist of the driving element (impeller) which is connected to the engine, the driven element (rotor) which is connected to the propeller shaft, and the fixed Element (reaction member) which is fixed to the frame.

  93. 93. GEAR SHIFT MECHANISM Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET With the gearbox of the conventional car installed right behind the clutch and the gear lever placed close to the driver, the two must be connected by a remote control rod in the gear box casing.
  94. 94. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET The striker rod of a sliding selector mechanism is guided across the gearbox by the driver and moves the guard to expose the slot in a sleeve. The striker rod enters the slot, and further movement of the gear lever slides the sleeve along its rod to engage a gear. A locking ball engages a recess in the rod to hold the sleeve.
  95. 95. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET The ball-type selector has a similar striker rod but a different guard, which is part of the locking plunger. When the striker moves sideways it disengages the plunger and engages the selector sleeve's slot. Movement of the plunger also unlocks the selector sleeve, so it is then free to slide along its rod and engage a gear.
  96. 96. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET The rod of a column-mounted gearchange runs down either the side or centre of the steering column. Two movements, raising the lever and turning the rod, select and engage the gears.
  97. 97. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET The gearchange used on the Renault 4 ran through the fascia to the gearbox. Twisting the rod selected the gear (via the auxiliary lever) and sliding the rod engaged it.
  98. 98. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET The selection mechanism of the Vauxhall Viva (GM) had a toothed rod inside a slotted collar. The rod was turned to engage a shoulder on a selector fork, then moved backward or forward to slide the selector and dog clutch into position. The collar ensured that only one fork was engaged at a time.
  99. 99. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET The Ford Escort system centres on a single rod, on which the forward speed selector forks are mounted. Connected to the gear lever, this rod also carried an arm and peg. When the gear lever was moved across the "gate" the rod turned, and the peg engaged a slot in the appropriate selector fork - that for first/second gear was engaged here. The gear lever was then moved forward, so sliding the selector fork backwards, while the other forks were held in position by the locking plate.

  122. 122. TYPES OF DIFFERENTIAL 1. Open or Conventional differential 2. Limited slip differential (LSD) 3. Locking differential 4. AutomaticTorque biasing Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  123. 123. LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIAL  A limited slip differential (LSD) or anti-spin is another type of traction aiding device that uses a mechanical system.  This is activated under centrifugal force to positively lock the left and right spider gears together when one wheel spins a certain amount faster than the other.  This type behaves as an open differential unless one wheel begins to spin and exceeds that threshold.  While positraction units can be of varying strength, some of them with high enough friction to cause an inside tire to spin or outside tire to drag in turns like a spooled differential.  The LSD will remain open unless enough torque is applied to cause one wheel to lose traction and spin, at which point it will engage. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  124. 124.  A LSD can use clutches like a posi when engaged, or may also be a solid mechanical connection like a locker or spool. It is called limited slip because it does just that; it limits the amount that one wheel can "slip" (spin). Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET

  129. 129. ADVANTAGES:  Manages vehicle traction mechanically  Completely passive system, no user or electrical controller input required DISADVANTAGES:  Many moving components, more susceptible to failure  Expensive to produce APPLICATIONS:  Optional OEM equipment, performance oriented or high end production vehicles  Road racing Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  130. 130. LOCKING DIFFERENTIAL  A locking differential, such as ones using differential gears in normal use but using air or electrically controlled mechanical system.  It is the one which when locked allow no difference in speed between the two wheels on the axle.  They employ a mechanism for allowing the axles to be locked relative to each other, causing both wheels to turn at the same speed regardless of which has more traction.  This is equivalent to effectively bypassing the differential gears entirely.  Other locking systems may not even use differential gears but instead drive one wheel or both depending on torque value and direction. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  131. 131.  Automatic mechanical lockers do allow for some differentiation under certain load conditions, while a selectable locker typically couples both axles with a solid mechanical connection like a spool when engaged. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  132. 132. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  133. 133. ADVANTAGES:  No moving parts, extremely durable and strong  Maintains constant speed between both wheels  Produces a yaw stabilization force acting through the rear axle, i.e. resists vehicle rotation DISADVANTAGES:  Maintains constant speed between both wheels APPLICATIONS:  Purely off-road vehicles, Drag racing, Oval Racing Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  134. 134. TORSEN DIFFERENTIAL  A high-friction 'Automatic Torque Biasing' (ATB) differential, such as the Torsen differential, where the friction is between the gear teeth rather than at added clutches.  This applies more torque to the driven road wheel with highest resistance (grip or traction) than is available at the other driven road wheel when the limit of friction is reached at that other wheel.  When tested with the wheels off the ground, if one wheel is rotated with the differential case held, the other wheel will still rotate in the opposite direction as for an open differential.  But there will be some frictional losses and the torque will be distributed at other than 50/50. Although marketed as being "torque-sensing", it functions the same as a limited-slip differential Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  135. 135.  Shortened from “Torque Sensing” Differential.  Relies on gear pressure angles to cause a mechanical binding in a gear train that resists different wheel speeds.  Non adjustable, and difficult to quantify the performance without expensive equipment.  Has a large performance window, which enables it to be used in a wide range of applications  Still relies on torque input from the wheels to respond and can only apply a ratio of the torque to the non-slipping wheel Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET

  138. 138. ACTIVE DIFFERENTIAL  A relatively new technology is the electronically-controlled 'active differential'.  An electronic control unit (ECU) uses inputs from multiple sensors, including yaw rate, steering input angle, and lateral acceleration and adjusts the distribution of torque to compensate for undesirable handling behaviors like understeer.  Active differentials used to play a large role in the World Rally Championship, but in the 2006 season the FIA has limited the use of active differentials only to those drivers who have not competed in the World Rally Championship in the last five years. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  139. 139.  Fully integrated active differentials are used on the Ferrari F430, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, and on the rear wheels in the Acura RL. A version manufactured by ZF is also being offered on the B8 chassis Audi S4 and Audi A4.  The Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk7 in Performance trim also has an electronically controlled front-axle transverse differential lock, also known asVAQ.  The second constraint of the differential is passive it is actuated by the friction kinematics chain through the ground. The difference in torque on the road wheels and tires (caused by turns or bumpy ground) drives the second degree of freedom, (overcoming the torque of inner friction) to equalize the driving torque on the tires. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  140. 140.  The sensitivity of the differential depends on the inner friction through the second degree of freedom. All of the differentials (so called “active” and “passive”) use clutches and brakes for restricting the second degree of freedom, so all suffer from the same disadvantage decreased sensitivity to a dynamically changing environment.  The sensitivity of the ECU controlled differential is also limited by the time delay caused by sensors and the response time of the actuators.

  142. 142. REAR AXLE  Rear Axles are structural members on which Rear wheels are mounted on bearings.  The weight of the body of the automobile and load due to the occupants is transmitted through springs to the axle casing. FORCES AND TORQUES ON THE REAR AXLE  Weight of the Body  Driving thrust  Torque Reaction  Side thrust Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  143. 143. 1.WEIGHT OFTHE BODY  Rear axle behaves like a beam supported at the ends and loaded at two points.  The load coming on the axle is due to the weight of the body being transmitted through the suspension springs.  Weight causes shear force and bending on the wheels. 2. DRIVINGTHRUST  Torque produced by the engine causes the thrust on the wheels. This force is responsible for the forward motion of the vehicle.  The drive force from the wheels is transmitted to the body or chassis by means of Radius rods or thrust members. These members are in longitudinal direction connecting axle casing and the body. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  144. 144. 3.TORQUE REACTION  Torque reaction occurs due to the resistance offered by the wheels to the motion. This causes a torque produced on the axle in the counter clockwise direction when viewed from the left side of the vehicle rear wheel axle.  The torque produced by the braking torque is just the opposite to the torque reaction.  The torque reaction is opposed by Panhard rod which connects the Rear axle to the vehicle body or chassis and prevents excessive bending load coming onto the propeller shaft. 4. SIDETHRUST  Side thrust comes mainly when the vehicle is taking a turn or when the vehicle is moving along an laterally inclined surface.  The side thrust coming on to the axle can be taken by Panhard rod. Prepared By:K.Rajesh, AP/Mech,RMKCET
  145. 145. LOADS COMING ONTO LIVE REAR AXLE SHAFT  Shearing force due to vehicle weight  Bending moment due to the offset of the wheel and the suspension.  End thrust due to the side forces due to cornering, side wind etc.  Bending moment due to end thrust and reaction from the tires.  Driving torque.

  159. 159. TORQUE TUBE DRIVE  Torque reaction, Braking torque and drive thrust are taken by Torque tube.  The suspension springs are taking only the side thrust and body weight.  One end of the torque tube is attached to the axle casing while the other end is spherical and fits into the cup on the frame. The torque tube encloses the propeller shaft.  Torque tube takes the torque reaction and centre line of the bevel pinion shaft always passes through the centre of the spherical cup.  Single universal joint is used in the transmission drive because the universal joint is situated exactly at the centre of the spherical cup.  No sliding joint is provided since the pinion shaft and the propeller shaft moves same center ( spherical cup).
