EXPERIMENTAL DISC BRAKES FOR AN URBAN BUS. PART 2

FRENI SPERIMENTALI A DISCO PER AUTOBUS URBANI

This is the second and final part of the article, the first part having been published in the previous issue of the journal. Here the assembly of ventilated disc brakes to the four front wheels of a single deck bus with twin front axles, is described and illustrated. Details are given of laboratory tests and of field tests carried out under real working conditions in Milan. Though the cost factor was not greatly considered in this article, it was concluded that the experiments had proved the technical possibilities of the wider use of disc brakes on this type of vehicle.
