Heavy Vehicle Disc Brake Components Design Using CAE Tools 2006-01-3559
Two simulation analysis case studies for optimization of disc brake assembly level performance and component structural strength using CAE tools were discussed. The first case study discussed was about disc brake assembly level simulation studies to optimize brake pads contact pressures in order to achieve uniform brake friction pad wear during operation, and optimize the guide pin reaction loads. In the second case study, structural optimization of brake torque plate using CAE tools was discussed. The CAE results were validated with the component testing.
