Glossary Transmission System

A. Accumulator: A device that cushions the motion of clutch and servo action in an automatic transmission in order to provide smooth shifting at various throttle openings. Accumulator valve: A valve that regulates accumulator action based on load and throttle opening. Adaptive Learn Automatic Transmission: Many of the newer automatic transmissions made today can “learn” and adapt to […]

Performance of vehicle – Manual OEM gearbox calculation

PERFORMANCE OF DRIVE TRAIN If a driver wants to keep its speed constant, he needs to have equivalent engine power to the running resistance but needs more power for acceleration to overcome the acceleration resistance. In the case of deceleration of the vehicle, the inertia energy of the vehicle can be restored by the inertia […]

CVT in a BAJA car

As none of us are going to design and fabricate this complicate design, this section deals with the tuning of CVT rather than its design. In this discussion we focus on a particular type of CVT and try to tune it, taking into account all the required parameters. Though other methods are also available, the […]

Static Dynamic Forces and acceleration

Static Loads Wfs= Wc/L Wrs= Wb/L Wfs = Static weight on front axle Wrs = Static weight on rear axle Dynamic Loads Grades (θ) Wf = Wfs – Whθ/L Wr = Wrs + Whθ/L Wf = Dynamic weight on front axle Wr = Dynamic weight on rear axle Accelerating Wf = Wfs – Whax/(Lgc) Wr = Wrs + Whax/(Lgc) […]
