Abstract :

Design of the synchronizer plays a vital role in determining the shifting force and gear box performance in manual transmission. In this paper a synchronizer assembly of the 4th gear of a Volkswagen Golf is modeled using Creo 2.2 and structural analysis is carried out using Ansys 15. The simulation is carried out in two mating positions;the “Just meshed” and the “Completely meshed” condition. Also, the paper observes the variation of the behavior due to the change in synchronizer material. Steel, Aluminum alloy and Brass are the three materials ofsynchronizer ring for which the analysis is carried out. The analysis is conducted at varying loads from 400 N to 1600N. The parameters to determine the behaviour for the above mentioned conditions are the Ring and Sleeve Deformation, Equivalent Von Mises stresses and Maximum Principle Stresses. In conclusion, suggestions are made regarding the optimum materials for the synchronizer ring and sleeve
