DIFERENCIAL TORSEN PDF

The locking differential is useful for serious off-road vehicles. This type of differential has the same parts as an open differential, but adds an electric, pneumatic or hydraulic mechanism to lock the two output pinions together. This mechanism is usually activated manually by switch, and when activated, both wheels will spin at the same speed. If one wheel ends up off the ground, the other wheel won't know or care.

The locking differential is useful for serious off-road vehicles. This type of differential has the same parts as an open differential, but adds an electric, pneumatic or hydraulic mechanism to lock the two output pinions together. This mechanism is usually activated manually by switch, and when activated, both wheels will spin at the same speed. If one wheel ends up off the ground, the other wheel won't know or care.

Both wheels will continue to spin at the same speed as if nothing had changed. As soon as one wheel starts to lose traction, the difference in torque causes the gears in the Torsen differential to bind together. The design of the gears in the differential determines the torque bias ratio. For instance, if a particular Torsen differential is designed with a bias ratio, it is capable of applying up to five times more torque to the wheel that has good traction.

These devices are often used in high-performance all-wheel-drive vehicles. Like the viscous coupling, they are often used to transfer power between the front and rear wheels. In this application, the Torsen is superior to the viscous coupling because it transfers torque to the stable wheels before the actual slipping occurs. However, if one set of wheels loses traction completely, the Torsen differential will be unable to supply any torque to the other set of wheels. The bias ratio determines how much torque can be transferred, and five times zero is zero.

The owner's manual for the Hummer proposes a novel solution to the problem of one wheel coming off the ground: Apply the brakes. By applying the brakes, torque is applied to the wheel that is in the air, and then five times that torque can go to the wheel with good traction. Gas-powered vs. Electric Cars: Which Is Faster?

How Differentials Work

However you will also find them here occasionally As a follow-up to that previous topic, lets take a look today into a more sophisticated and realistic solution, based on the Torsen Differential design. Torsen was invented by the American Vernon Gleasman and got its name from a contraction of Tor que- Sen sing. It is a purely mechanical device which exploits the fact that worm gears cannot be back driven; it has no electronics, clutches or viscous fluids. Works as an open differential when the amount of torque going to each wheel is equal. As soon as one wheel starts to lose traction, the difference in torque causes the gears in the Torsen differential to bind together.

While we are no longer able to make these available to student teams, we are aware that there are quite a few teams still operating University Specials differentials. For that reason, we will continue to make the FSAE support information available on our website. This information is provided for reference only, no University Special differentials or components are available for sale. The current one-piece housing differential part number is and replaces the older two-piece housing design part number MDHU. When ordering this new differential, please order it by the current part number! When calculating sprocket torque, be certain to account for your low gear and final drive ratios. This oil provides high-pressure additives needed to prevent the oil from breaking down under the extreme conditions generated by the tooth mesh.

Torsen differential

Torsen Torque-Sensing full name Torsen traction is a type of limited-slip differential used in automobiles. Torsen is a portmanteau of Torque-Sensing. All Torsen differentials have their origin in the Dual-Drive Differential that was invented and patented by Gleasman in Torsen differentials can be used in one or more positions on a motor vehicle :. As of [update] , there are three types of Torsen differentials.
