The factors considered are the brake block itself, and the various conditions of control between wheel tire and block. The variations in braking which occur through the mutual contact of wheel tire and block are as follows: variation of the coefficient of friction of a brake block with speed; block friction and applied force, block friction and tire temperature; block friction and weather; and effect of wheel diameter with drum, disc, and dynamic braking. These effects are briefly described.
