Torque Converters and Hydraulic Couplings
The term torque converter is a misnomer, since any mechanism which changes the speed/torque characteristic of a given power is a ‘torque converter’. By general use, however, the term has become adopted for that particular form which completes the conversion hydrokinetically.
