Abstract:
Within the advances in Computer Fluid Dynamics algorithms and High Performance Computing, large clusters become available at low costs allowing virtual simulations that were not possible some years ago at reasonable costs and time.This work uses intensively this condition and applies these advances on brake system optimization. The methodology developed in the present work verifies the best angular position for caliper inside the wheel to reduce the rotor temperature during braking process such as downhill procedure.Thus, this method is applied to a mini-VAN vehicle, where the best position is found, based on two design parameters: rotor temperature and convection heat transfer coefficient. This study shows that the most suitable position for initial selection is the first one.
