Improved Drum Brake Shoe Factor Prediction with the Consideration of System Compliance 2000-01-3417

Effective linear and nonlinear drum brake system FEA (finite element analysis) models have been developed. Such models can help engineers understand many drum brake related issues, such as lining wear and mechanical and thermal instability. The pressure distribution at the drum and lining interface is an important piece of information in drum brake design. Besides the accurate prediction of the shoe factor, the models can be used to guide designs for improving brake efficiency, reducing component weight and enhancing durability. Progress is also being made in developing hybrid models that integrate FEA models with other analysis techniques. This approach offers engineers easy-to-use design tools. The integrated design and analysis approach will help product design and development by reducing cycle time, cost and improving product quality.
