Abstract

Today, various types of gearboxes have been introduced into the vehicles to change the way the classic manual gearboxes work, such as automatic gearboxes, semi-automatic, continuous variable, dual-clutch automatic gearboxes etc. However, most gear shifters for in-service vehicles are still classical manuals, which is why their optimal synthesis based on their dynamics and especially on optimal performance is now more than necessary. The paper presents how to accurately determine the mechanical performance of a gearbox for passenger buses. Based on these relationships, an optimal synthesis of the performance of a classic, mechanical, manual gearshift can be achieved regardless of its operating status.
