The Influence of Brake Wear Debris Chemical Properties on Wheel Dust 2009-01-3020
Recently, vehicle owners have placed low wheel dust as a key component of customer satisfaction. To understand wheel dust, it is necessary to conduct a chemical analysis of influences on the accumulation of wheel dust and available countermeasures. The primary components of the brake wear debris chemical composition analysis are the amount of wear, the property of diffusion, the propensity of the debris to adhere on the wheel, and the granularity of the adhered debris. This study will aid in the design of new friction materials with a low propensity for wheel dust.
