THE DEVELOPMENT OF CLASSIFICATION SCHEME FOR BRAKE LININGS. VOLUME I

A comparison is made between vehicle braking performance as predicted by computer simulation and as measured on fully instrumented vehicle tests. A new technique is described for accurately finger printing brake lining frictional characteristics based on full-scale dynamometer tests. It is proposed that this technique be used with a small-scale laboratory machine in developing a classification scheme for replacement brake linings.
