Is it really complex?

Part of my objective in writing this blog is to clarify issues that are seen as complex to render them to the “actual complexity of the system”; simplify without sacrificing accuracy. Recently when looking up information on transmissions I came across this video from Chevy from 1936, explaining how a transmission works. While modern transmissions have additional components not covered in this video (such as hydraulic clutches) the fundamentals are there.

With that in mind, today I want to take this opportunity to highlight another excellent work that explains a fundamental engineering concept.
