Transmission performance directly influences vehicle behaviour, energy efficiency, and perceived quality. A modern transmission is an aggregate of interacting sub-systems, e. g. gears, bearings, synchronisers and other shifting elements. New transmission trends ask for increased shift performance with higher loads for the synchronising components. Synchroniser development has traditionally required exhaustive physical testing and few analytical methods exist. A numerical method for assessing pre-synchronisation performance, using a multi-physics FEM software, is presented. Simulations show that grooves in the synchroniser surface have a positive effect on pre-synchronisation, and that the presence of grooves seems to be more important than the groove design.
