Simulation of Aircraft Brake Vibration Using Flexible Multibody and Finite Element Methods to Guide Component Testing 2001-01-3142

Brake-induced vibration often involves strong coupling with the aircraft structure, thereby necessitating a system level understanding. However, testing a full system is both costly and impossible until late in the development cycle. To overcome these issues, it becomes necessary to utilize simulation tools to assess the system behavior at an earlier stage. This paper demonstrates a methodology which implements such simulations to guide appropriate brake component tests that are more tractable for the brake supplier. As a result of this combined simulation and testing, a reduction in actual testing can be achieved.
