Paper Abstract

This study focuses on the design and characterization of a multi-plate magneto-rheological fluid (MRF) limited slip differential (LSD) clutch. Three-dimensional electromagnetic finite element analyzes are performed to optimize the MRF LSD clutch design. The torque transfer capacity of the clutch is predicted utilizing Bingham-Plastic constitutive model of the MRF. The MRF LSD clutch is tested at different velocities and applied magnetic fields. The clutch heating is also examined under different operating conditions to determine the thermal effects on the torque transfer performance of the multi-plate clutch.
