Default clutch simulation
Posts: n/a

Is it possible to simulate clutch in starcd? I want to simulate wet clutch plates rubbing with each other. There will be oil film in between plates. Now question is, 1. Is it necessary to create a oil film layer physically there? Since we do not know thickness, how physical layer can be built. 2. In user manual liquid film option, it is said to have wall BC for film simulation. But how to create wall BC in between two clutch plates, since it is not boundary. If forcibally created it gives warning. 3. Is it possible to predict torque transmitted by clutch plate?

Kindly guide
