An Analytical Method to Predict Thermal Distortion of a Brake Rotor 2000-01-0445

The severe thermal distortion of a brake rotor can affect important brake system characteristics such as the system response and brake judder propensity. This paper will propose a technique to determine the thermal distortion under transient or steady state conditions. The technique involves utilizing a PC-based computer program to calculate the necessary thermal parameters and apply the results as input to a finite element-based thermal stress analysis. This unique approach provides a reliable methodology to determine the heat input and cooling characteristics of a given brake system in addition to resultant distortion and stress components within the brake rotor. Analysis results are also compared to measured temperature and distortion data.
