Optimized Braking System Sizing by Means of a Parametric 1D Brake Model 2019-26-0355

This paper presents a methodology that incorporates a 1D (non-geometric) brake model, together with conventional vehicle tests, into the solution of problems associated with the sizing of a braking system.
The 1D tool is aimed at predicting the main braking attributes, such as pedal feel or thermal capacity under repeated snubs, and the fulfilment of the legislative requirements -service, emergency and parking brake performance. The model recreates a parametric brake system, and thus allows engineers to understand the impact a parameter (e.g. a specification) might have on the overall performance when it is altered. This calculation provides valuable assistance when sizing a braking system.
The methodology presented succeeds in reducing the number of vehicle test iterations throughout the brake sizing stage, thus being more cost-effective and less time-consuming than the usual trial and error approach to select the off-the-shelf components available from suppliers.
