BRAKE RATINGS FOR AUTOMOTIVE VEHICLES 570023

THREE factors involved in braking are energy conversion rate, heat storage capacity, and heat dissipation rate. These are used by the author in proposing a method for rating brakes.
Ultimately a brake rating system will involve many variables, some of which must be determined from experimentation.
The present rating method of gvw per square inch of bake lining area would form a good basis for rating brakes if certain limitations and corrections are made.
