Prediction of Brake Pad Wear/Life by Means of Brake Severity Factor As Measured on a Data Logging System 840358

The use of brakes on public roads depends on traffic conditions and the road itself. In order to research into brake usage on various roads and under various conditions, a micro-computer data logging system was developed. The recorded data were analyzed by a large computer and the severity of brake usages was defined. The relationship between the severity and the brake disc rotor temperature was derived, and used to predict brake pad wear/life. The predicted wear coincided fairly clossly with measured wear.
