Inertia Dynamometer Evaluation of Brake Lining Materials 730192

Brake lining performance as depicted by small friction machines does not reflect the performance obtained during vehicle brake tests. This paper shows that an inertia dynamometer using full-scale vehicle brake hardware can be programmed to simulate vehicle test conditions and produce brake performance data corresponding to vehicle test data. Methods for determining the dynamometer flywheel inertia and brake cooling airflow are discussed.
