The choice of brake friction materials varies per application, but each must have the appropriate coefficient of friction and be able to disperse large amounts of heat without adversely effecting braking performance. This seminar will provide an introduction to brake lining raw materials and formulation, manufacturing, quality control and testing. The course covers the critical elements that must be reviewed before arriving at a lining selection decision. Different classes of friction material and their use will be defined.

Hydraulic brake systems, one of the most important safety features on many road vehicles today, must meet manufacturer and customer requirements in addition to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. This course will analyze automotive braking from a system's perspective, emphasizing legal requirements as well as performance expectations such as pedal feel, stopping distance, fade and thermal management. Calculations necessary to predict brake balance and key system sizing variables that contribute to performance will be discussed.

Brake noise is one of the highest ranked complaints of car owners. Grunts, groans, squeaks, and squeals are common descriptions of the annoying problem which brake engineers spend many hours trying to resolve. Consumer expectations and the high cost of warranty repairs are pushing the optimization of brake NVH performance. This course will provide you with an overview of the various damping mechanisms and tools for analyzing and reducing brake noise. A significant component of this course is the inclusion of case studies which will demonstrate how brake noise squeal issues have been successfully resolved.

Brake Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) is recognized as one of the major problems currently faced by the automotive manufacturers and their suppliers, with customers warranty claims of more than $100 million per year for each manufacturer. With increasing consumer braking performance expectations, automotive OEM’s and suppliers need the ability to predict potential problems and identify solutions during the design phase before millions of dollars have been spent in design, prototyping, and manufacturing tooling.

Once reserved for high-end luxury vehicles, electronic brake control systems are now required standard equipment on even the most inexpensive cars and trucks. Today, nearly every new vehicle benefits from the optimized braking, enhanced acceleration, or improved stability that these systems provide. This comprehensive seminar introduces participants to the system-level design considerations, vehicle interface requirements, and inevitable performance compromises that must be addressed when implementing these technologies. The seminar begins by defining the tire-road interface and analyzing fundamental vehicle dynamics.
With a mandate in Europe for Autonomous emergency braking systems, there is a development happening with radar and camera based systems to do collision mitigation. The challenges include robust object tracking, stationary object detection, reactions for false positives etc. The developments and challenges in the collision mitigation technology will be discussed in this session.
This session is focused on vehicle dynamics and controls using modeling and simulation, and experimental analysis of passenger cars, heavy trucks, and wheeled military vehicles. This session addresses active and passive safety systems to mitigate rollover, yaw instability and braking issues; driving simulators and hardware-in-the-loop systems; suspension kinematics and compliance, steering dynamics, advanced active suspension technologies; and tire force and moment mechanics.

Designing a brake system requires the ability to balance a multitude of parameters against the required tradeoffs of system weight, system cost, and system performance. Understanding the basic fundamentals of how each brake component attribute contributes to the overall Force vs Deceleration behavior of the vehicle is critical to the design and release of a safe, legal and optimized system for today’s vehicles. Brake balance also is a contributing factor to other chassis control and safety systems, such as regenerative braking, ABS, and electronic brake distribution (EBD).

A 4 wheeled vehicle with X-split brake configuration, in hydraulic circuit failed condition will have a behavior of induced sway due to braking force variation in the front and rear. This paper proposes a novel approach & methodology to predict the effect of brake force distribution variation on the vehicle swaying behavior during circuit failed braking condition. This Study will quantify vehicle sway, caused due to imbalance in brake force distribution during a circuit failed braking event on X Split configuration vehicles. It briefly discusses on a case study about most feasible solution to reduce the vehicle sway by altering the brake force distribution in circuit failed condition alone, without having any change in brake force distribution during service brake condition. It also provides a positive correlation & confirmation through actual vehicle testing.
