If the normal intensity of pressure between contacting surface is not to exceed 0.085 N/mm2 and the coefficient of friction is 0.2 assuming uniform wear conditions, calculate the dimensions of the clutch.(10 marks) 6 (b) A band break arrangement is shown in FigQ6(b). It is used to generate a maximum braking torque of 200N-m. Determine the actuating force 'P', if coefficient of friction is 0.25. the angle of wrap of the band is 270°. Determine the maximum intensity of pressure, if the band width is 30mm. (10 marks) 7 (a) Explain the following types of lubrication
i) Hydrodyanamic lubrication ii)Hydrostatic lubrication
iii) Boundary lubrication iv) Elasto hydro dynamic lubrication.

Bearing diameter:50.02mm Journal diameter:49.93 mm
Bearing length:50mm Jornoul speed:1140 r/min
Radial load=8 kN Viscosity of lubricant :12cp.
The bearing is machined on a lathe from bronze casting, while the steel journal is hardened and ground. The surfaces roughness values for turning and grading are 0.8 and 0.4 microns respectively. For thick film lubrication the minimum film thickness should be five times the sum of surface roughness values for the journal and the bearing. Calculate:
i) The permissible minimum film thickness
ii) The actual film thickness under the operating conditions
iii) Power loss in friction
iv) Flow requirement.
