Termomekanisk simulering och optimering av skivbromssystem: del 2

Thermomechanical simulation and optimisation of disc brake systems: part 2

Through advanced FE calculations (Coupled thermo mechanical contact analysis) using thorough models, the behaviour of the complete disc brake assembly can be analyzed in detail. Objectives: Improved braking performance (e.g. stopping distance). Improved performance for different brake control strategies like ACC, queue support etc. were the foundation brakes are used. Improved processes for shorter development time and reduced validation costs. Developing methods for predictions of frictional, fatigue life, disc wear and pad wear.
