MENDAY, M.T. and RAHNEJAT, H., 2010. Friction lining characteristics and the clutch take up judder phenomenon with manual transmission. IN: Rahnejat, H. (ed). Tribology and Dynamics of Engine and Powertrain: Fundamentals, Applications and Future Trends. Woodhead Publishing Ltd, pp. 680 - 702
This chapter considers the clutch take-up judder phenomenon in rear wheel drive (RWD)
automotive drivelines, fitted with manual transmissions and dry friction clutches.
It discusses how and why the phenomenon occurs, the underlying system dynamics, the
tribological contributions to the problem, the dominant influential factors, and the
prospects for a design solution which would negate the need for costly palliation.
