Research on Tribological Properties of Micro-Vehicle Clutch’s Friction Material


Article Preview

To explore the substantial cause of the early abnormal wear of micro-vehicle clutch’s friction material, the sample test aimed at studying the tribological properties of micro-vehicle clutch’s friction material is designed, according to GB/5763-98 national test standards. The broken line graph of samples’ friction coefficient on and wear rates in different working conditions are obtained. There are two types of working conditions. One is the same line speed and different working loads of samples, and the other is the same working load and different line speeds. Combined Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)’s observation with tribological principle, the sample test result is analyzed, thus obtaining the changing rules of the materials’ friction coefficient and wear rates at different temperatures, working loads and line speeds.
