Clutch Work: A clutch is any mechanism for transmitting rotation, which can be engaged and disengaged. In everyday use, the term clutch refers to a subcomponent of motor vehicle engine’s transmission designed to allow engagement or disengagement of the engine to the gearbox or whatever apparatus is being driven. Invention of the clutch is attributed to Karl Benz.
There are many different vehicle clutch designs, but most are based on one or more friction discs, pressed tightly together or against a flywheel using springs. The friction material is very similar to the material used in brake shoes and pads and used to contain asbestos. The spring pressure is released when the clutch pedal is depressed and the discs are held less tightly and allowed to rotate freely. A wet clutch is immersed in lubricating fluid to keep the surfaces clean and to cool it, for improved performance and longer life; while a dry clutch is not. Since the surfaces of a wet clutch can be slippery, stacking multiple clutch disks can compensate for slippage.
