Dynamics and tribological analysis of a toroidal CVT

Abstract

The continuously variable transmission investigated in this paper works with contacts in the elastohydrodynamic regime of lubrication, thus the tangential forces are transmitted between elements through the shearing the lubricant film. The behavior of the lubricant film when subjected to shear depends of the nature of the lubricant and the relative motion… (More)
