The Effect of Distributed Parameters Examined in a Model for Simulation of Disc Brake Squeal 2000-01-2766
A mathematical model for representing the vibration behavior of a disc brake is presented. Special emphasis has been put on the need to simulate the high frequency response by the use of continuous flexible elements, to represent the most important components of the brake. The simple mathematical modeling approach allows for conceptual understanding of the squeal generation mechanisms. In this study, the effect of the variation of system parameters over the length of the components, is investigated.
