Friction Processes in Disc Brake – Brake Pad Couple 2002-01-1484

The future of new brake systems is very promising. Development of design, materials, technology and control solutions provides opportunity to improve brake system performance. However, knowledge of friction processes still does not answer all current problems.
This paper presents a review of factors influencing brake disc - brake pad operating conditions. Attention is focused on synergism of factors and changes in mating surfaces. The authors took into consideration factors coming from operation of the whole brake system: from master cylinder to friction couple. The analysis is supported by the unpublished research results in this field.
