THE USE OF THE COMPUTER IN DETERMINING BRAKE BALANCE

In order to predict vehicle brake performance, calculations are made to determine the size of brakes, wheel cylinders, proportioning valves, and metering valves to give the desired results. To achieve this, basic data are required of brake torque output versus brake force input. This report deals with gathering of test data, brake balance calculations, and presentation in a graphical form by means of the IBM 1130 computer and graphing system. /GMRL/
