Muhammad Irfan is a Ph.D. Student. The overall objective of the project is to: - Develop new knowledge and optimize synchronization system in mechanical transmissions with respect to life, robustness, power consumption and shift quality. The main objective has also been broken down to specific objectives - Increase synchronizing system life and keep its properties as constant as possible during transmission life, without deterioration. - Minimize the change of synchronizing performance during its lifetime. - The development of computer-based tools to quickly and effectively evaluate new concepts for synchronization system in concept development. AB Volvo, Scania, Chalmers and the Royal Institute of Technology are partners of the project. The main supervisor for the project is Viktor Berbyuk.
