[en] Many transmission components contain moving parts which can enter in contact. The TORSEN differentials are mainly composed of gear pairs and thrust washers. The friction involved by contacts between these two kind of parts is essential in the working principle of such differentials. In this paper, two different contact model are presented. The former uses an augmented Lagrangian technique and is defined between a rigid body and a flexible structure. The second contact formulation is a continuous impact modeling based on a restitution coefficient.
