Hydraulic Brake Actuation Systems under Consideration of Antilock Systems and Disc Brakes 730535

Hydraulic power braking systems for use in passenger cars and light trucks are attracting considerable automotive design attention. This is due to their compactness, smaller space requirements, and better operating “feel,” as well as their more direct control over the braking function, which has extremely short application and release times. Moreover, they are readily adaptable to the energy source and controls of an antilock system, and they contribute to (or even form the basis of) a central power-supply system that would provide servo assistance to other vehicle systems. This paper describes and explains ways of creating these brake systems and gives design calculations of brake layouts based on standard values and comparative judgment criteria.
