Effect of repeated vehicle braking on the warming of selected parts of the vehicle

The friction brakes convert a significant part of a vehicle’s kinetic energy into thermal energy. Some of its parts is distributed to the places around the brakes, and another part is accumulated in several vehicle components. This article is focused on the measurement of temperature increase of selected vehicle components during re-deceleration. These components include brake discs, brake pads, calliper, wheel rim and tire side in the area of its bead and tread. The measurements were performed during the repeated braking of a fully-loaded vehicle according to ECE Regulation No 13 - type I.
