Overview of Disc Brakes and Related Phenomena - a literature review
2013 (English)Report (Other academic)
Disc brakes have evolved over time to be a reliable method of decelerating and stopping a vehicle. There have been dierent designs of disc brake systems for dierent applications. This review gives a detailed description of dierent geometries of the components and the materials used in a disc brake system. In spite of all the improvements, there are still many issues related to disc brakes that need to be understood in a greater detail and resolved. There has been a lot of research going on about these issues and at the same time dierent methods are being proposed to eliminate or reduce them. These methods include the changes in geometry of dierent components, dierent or improved materials, addition of new components and changes in cooling methods etc. There has also been an intensive research going on about the evolution of tribological interface of disc-pad system. One major purpose of the present paper is to give a comprehensive overview of all such developments.
