AN INVESTIGATION OF BRAKE BALANCE FOR STRAIGHT AND CURVED BRAKING

A basic engineering analysis is presented that allows optimum values of brake balance to be determined for both straight and curved braking. The effects of brake fade on brake balance are discussed. Different wheel antiskid systems are analyzed, and test results are presented for three domestic vehicles. A methodology for determining expected safety benefits of advanced brake systems is reviewed.
