This library contains element types for couplings and clutches, which can be used for modeling drives and powertrains.
The models can be parameterized with commonly available values such as catalog information or technical drawing parameters. This allows to implement sophisticated simulation models without knowing the underlying physics and modeling aspects for the clutches or couplings in every detail.
