Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2018/117709
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A hydrokinetic torque converter comprises a casing, an impeller wheel, a turbine wheel coaxially aligned with the impeller wheel, a stator situated between the impeller and turbine wheels, a one-way turbine clutch permitting rotational movement of the turbine wheel in one circumferential direction only, and a torsional vibration damper. The one-way turbine clutch includes an outer ring non-rotatably coupled to the turbine wheel, an inner ring and engagement components positioned between the outer and the inner rings. The torsional vibration damper comprises an input member, circumferentially acting elastic members, and an output member elastically coupled to the input member through the elastic members. The output member of the torsional vibration damper is non-rotatably coupled to the outer ring of the one-way turbine clutch. The turbine wheel is non-rotatably coupled to one of the outer ring of the one-way turbine clutch and the output member of the torsional vibration damper.
