An analytical model of an electromagnetically operated friction-disk clutch is constructed in order to determine the wear on the clutch face. The face consists of two materials—metal rings and friction material. The pertinent differential equations, derived in the Appendexes, are solved numerically. The effects of varying such parameters as hardness, residual magnetism, and elastic constants are studied.
