The driveline of many crafts during mooring maneuvers operates in the “trolling” mode, which is characterized by large slippages of the clutch. Sometimes the properties of clutch material and oil lead to the onset of self-excited torsion vibrations and wide fluctuations in torque. To analyze this phenomenon a numerical model of a typical marine driveline is developed, friction characteristics of the clutch are simulated by means of a LuGre model. A parametric stability analysis is carried out to highlight the effect of the parameters of the LuGre friction model on the stability of torsion vibrations. A series of experimental tests is performed on a specific test bench to identify the parameters of the driveline and to validate the numerical model. Results shows that the updated numerical model is able to replicate experimental results.
