THE DEVELOPMENT OF 4-WHEEL DISC BRAKE SYSTEMS IN EUROPE

Recent efforts to improve directional stability when braking, and the implications of the various European and American legal requirements, particularly their influence on brake system design and performance, gives cause for a general review of the disc brake, how it has been used in the past, and what the future will mean. It is concluded that while some vehicle manufacturers are showing the way to improved braking performance, it will be desirable for others to follow suit to meet the challenges facing the automotive industry of the next decade. /SAE/
