Effects of Chemical Components and Manufacturing Process of Cast Iron Brake Disc on its Resonant Frequency Variation 2009-01-3030

Many engineers have been working to reduce brake noise in many ways for a long time. So far, a progress has been made in preventing and predicting brake noise. Nevertheless, there are some discrepancies of brake noise generation propensity between testing for the prototype and the production. As known in general, the reason for this unpredicted brake noise occurrence in production is partly due to the variation of the resonant frequency, material and the other unpredictable or unmanageable variations of the components in a brake system. In this paper, effects of chemical components and casting process of gray iron brake disc on its resonant frequency variation have been studied. Especially this paper is focused on the variation in material aspects and manufacturing parameters during disc casting in usual production condition. And their effects are investigated by the variation of out-of-plane modal resonant frequency.
