Device for Applying Brake Pedal at a Controlled Rate for Impact Brake Testing 720448

The determination of the impact load capability of vehicle brake system components is necessary to verify product design requirements. Testing methods and procedures must minimize the variables inherent in vehicle “spike stop” applications to assure the acquisition of accurate, meaningful test data. This paper describes the design, development, and characteristics of a device currently in use for “spike stop” brake applications at a vehicle test facility.
