EXPERIMENTAL DISC BRAKES FOR URBAN BUSES. PART 1

FRENI SPERIMENTALI A DISCO PER AUTOBUS URBANI. PRIMA PARTE

The first part of this article contains 4 sections as follows: 1, generality; 2, modifications to the rear brakes (including bench tests and tests on the vehicle); 3, front brake problems (including noise and the characteristics of disc brakes); and 4, experimental disc brakes for the rear axle. The results of the test program have been so satisfactory that integral disc brakes are proposed for all Lancia 718.441 buses and all future Fiat 421 buses. The second part of this article will be published in the next issue of this journal. /TRRL/
