A simulation method and laboratory brake friction dynamometer for tribology studies
MetadataShow full item record
Two of the most important parameters of brake system design are the frictional and wear capabilities of the rotor and pad materials. These parameters must meet minimum design requirements in an effort to enhance friction and reduce wear to improve the performance and life of brake system components. The frictional and wear performance of the rotor and pad materials can be assessed through laboratory brake dynamometer testing and evaluation. In the current study, a wear testing simulation and an inertia laboratory brake dynamometer were developed to resolve differences in wear rates of brake ...
