Abstract:
A front disc brake system is used as an example for an investigation of low frequency squeal. Many different modifications to this disc brake system have been proposed and this paper focuses on a solution that reduces the stiffness of the rotor. This is accomplished by a reduction in the Young's modulus of the rotor material. The complex eigenvalue method is used for a detailed analytical study in order to obtain a better understanding of this solution technique. Modal participation factors are calculated to examine the modal coupling mechanism. Parametric studies are also performed to find out the effects of friction coefficient and rotor stiffness. Results show that shifting rotor resonance frequencies may ecouple the modal interaction and eliminate dynamic instability, which is in agreement with experimental results.
