THERMAL PROPERTY MEASUREMENTS IN BRAKE SHOE MATERIALS

As part of a program to numerically calculate the heat flow between brake shoes and wheels, the thermal diffusivity, specific heat, and thermal conductivity of five cast iron and three composition brake shoe materials were determined. A pulsed laser technique was used for thermal diffusivity measurements, and the specific heat was determined by a differential scanning calorimeter.
