Brake Noise Study (Part II) - High Frequency Squeal 2006-01-0475
This paper applies the existing techniques used in the CAE simulation for calculation of potential high frequency (>10 kHz) squeal from disc brake system. The goal is to investigate the component interaction at the system level. A simulated dynamometer process is developed using stability analysis at different pressures and friction coefficient combinations. From the identified squealing condition, coupled with measured ODS, dynamic characteristics at system level are tracked to the components contribution based on the mode merging phenomenon as the system turns unstable due to friction coupling. The component contribution is based on the strain energy of the component in the system mode and MAC between mode components in free condition and system real modes. Special focus on rotor dynamics is discussed and its effect on system instability at high frequency range.
