Figure 4

The DFTV variator performance. The dimensionless output torque as a function of the overall creep coefficient (a) and the overall mechanical efficiency as a function of the input torque coefficient (b) for the three geometric ratios ( − black curve,  − blue curve,  − red curve). Calculations are shown for kN.
