On Automotive Disc Brake Squeal Part IV
Reduction and Prevention 2003-01-3345
This paper as part IV of a series articles first very briefly reviews squeal generation process in terms of energy transfer. A squeal reduction and prevention cascade chart including various contribute elements is formed. Subsequently, variation ranges of some key parameters of brake components and system due to manufacturing processes and operational/usage condition changes are given. Design concept of a broad stable and less vibration brake system is proposed and addressed in light of these variations. Robust design criteria and strategies are discussed. Design tools and methods are summarized. At last, some application examples are provided.
