Conditions Upsetting Brake Lining and Drum Compatibility 670501

In order to maintain designed mating compatibility of brake drum and lining, we rely on assistance from the field maintenance personnel and the vehicle operators. Specifically, they must recognize environmental and mechanical conditions that prevent the compatibility of the brake lining and brake drums and based on their all around knowledge of braking fundamentals and experience correct these conditions.
This paper covers: theoretical braking concept; internal conditions contributing to noncompatibility of drum and linings; foreign conditions contributing to noncompatibility of drums and linings; corrections.
