What i would like to know is: I have a simple two plate clutch, and rotational force is being applied to it. I want it to slip at a point that i can predetermine using a spring that applies force to one of the plates (the other plate is fixed in place and cannot move [lateral,longitudinal or rotaional]) Ignoring wear and tear, could spring force and slipping point be plotted on a straight line graph? I'm asking because I think I have a cracking idea for my engineering project this year. If all goes well, I may even design a prototype. Cheers, Rik
