This paper highlights some of the most important characteristics of a friction material in general, and in a disc brake application in particular. Further, it shows how the topic of friction material properties be approached by an individual involved in design, development, testing, or marketing of the brake linings. Based upon the author's first-hand experience in this field, a "Friction Material Analysis Chart" has been developed, which summarizes the salient features associated with brake linings. From a practical standpoint, this chart would be a valuable tool in the analysis and selection of a friction material for a brake application.
