In a power transmission system of automobiles, Clutch plate is one of the most significance devices which are used to engage or disengage of power from the engine crank shaft to the gear box. For transmit maximum torque by using friction clutches is essential to select a proper friction material. The selection of friction material is one of the important tasks to increase a prolonged period of the clutch plate. In this study comparison is done for different friction materials to approve the better friction lining materials for Piaggio Ape clutch plate. This paper aimed to investigate structural behaviour by varying the friction surface material and keeping backing material aluminium same in a clutch plate. In this modelling of Piaggio Ape clutch plate has been created by solid work and then imported to ANSYS for power transmission application to study the structural analysis. Solid works is a software package for 3D modelling and ANSYS is commonly used in finite element analysis software package.
