Brake Squeal DOE Using Nonlinear Transient Analysis 1999-01-1737
To reduce warranty cost due to brake squeal and provide guidance for brake design, it is important to understand the contributions of key brake design parameters to brake noise. In this paper, a new technique, which employs the nonlinear transient finite element method as well as Taguchi method, is proposed as a design tool for improving the quality of brake systems. This DOE technique has been implemented to a car program. The final results identified the major parameters associated with the brake noise and also led to an optimal design by selecting appropriate levels of those parameters.
