Abstract:

This report summarizes the work accomplished under the Contract during the period from July 1973 to August 1974. The principle objectives of this program were to evaluate and demonstrate the technical feasibility of providing a controllable variation in the capacity of a torque converter, operating at a constant input speed, by a new and unique concept. The concept evaluated during this program involved the use of a secondary fluid stream introduced into the primary flow of a torque converter at the stationary reactor section. This technique conceptually acts to turn the direction of the primary flow, thus resembling in performance a mechanically pivoted stator section.
