Ever since the advent of the gas turbine engine, and its subsequent development and sophistication, the very unique operating requirements, characteristics, and benefits of gas turbine engines have challenged engineers of many disciplines to provide ancillary equipment and components that will function successfully with it. This paper will present selected specific examples of gas turbine drive system developments and their related power transmission designs with respect to clutch requirements—the Formsprag area of knowledge, know-how, and competence.
