DEVELOPMENT OF A LOW DRAG DISC BRAKE SYSTEM FOR SMALL CARS--AD DISC

In the first type of disk brakes, pin type sliding with boots to protect them is usually adopted for calipers. This has proved effective for preventing rusting in the northern part of the American continent and Europe. The recent tendency to improve the fuel economy is demanding reduced drag for disk brakes. In floating type disk brakes some amount of drag is inevitable, but in the AD brake the torque has been reduced to a minimum without adverse effects. Design details and results of laboratory and vehicle tests are explained.
