economics of Heavy-Duty Brake Design and Maintenance 600040

THIS PAPER presents a review of the design and operational problems of heavy-duty truck brakes. One of the major development goals is brakes that require no attention between relinings (as are now available on passenger cars).
The author discusses point by point the AMA-TTMA Brake Committee agreement relating to extended brake service life and periods between brake adjustments.
Emphasis is placed upon maintenance programs which provide for frequent inspection of the vehicle. The margin of brake performance deterioration is narrow.*
