Conventional transmission system using single plate clutch has to perform 15 operations to shift from low speed to high speed, out of the 10 operations are clutch operations. Hence making clutch operations automatic will reduce human effort. The auto-disengagement single clutch employs only one set of compression springs instead of the usual two sets, with this arrangement it is possible to reduce the weights of the centrifugal members. This arrangement keeps the clutch in normally disengaged condition unlike the conventional clutch that is in engaged condition and has to be disengaged by manual Lever. In transmitting power from engine to gearbox, Clutch plate plays an important role. So in this paper we designed a single plate clutch by using empirical formulae. By using CATIA V5 we have created a model of single plate clutch and then imported in ANSYS workbench for analysis. We have conducted static structural analysis of clutch base and its friction plate with lining material as FTL 097. The results are compared for the maximum deformation and stresses.
