Abstract:
An important metric in the vehicle brake design process, the cool-down time for a brake disk, strongly influences the durability and reliability of brakes. However, the brake cool-down time is a function of many vehicle and chassis factors, making it time consuming and expensive to evaluate and optimize in hardware testing.In this study, we investigate an alternative approach to hardware testing for evaluating brake design cool-down time by implementing a CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulation based methodology. The simulation cases were all compared with test data and good agreement was observed between test data and simulation over a wide range of design parameters. It is therefore demonstrated that accurate simulation is a promising new approach to the brake design process.
