Li, M., Meng, D., and Zhang, L., "Brake Judder Analysis Based on the Rigid-Flexible Coupling Model of Brake Corner," SAE Technical Paper 2016-01-1933, 2016, doi:10.4271/2016-01-1933.
Brake judder severely affects the riding comfort and safety of vehicle. For the brake corner system, a rigid-flexible coupling model is established based on ADAMS. In the model, brake pads, caliper, anchor and knuckle are flexible bodies, and the contacts between pads and disc and the contacts between pads and caliper are defined in detail. Meanwhile, the vibration acceleration of the brake corner components and the contact forces between disc and pads are used as evaluation index and the evaluation system of brake judder are improved. The analysis results show that the novel model and evaluation system can be used to predict brake judder effectively.
