Study on Disc Brake Groan 900007

It is very important for the vehicle comfort quality to eliminate brake noise. The brake noise can be defined into two phenomena: One is the high-frequency brake squeal (frequency 1-15kHz), we have presented in 1989 SAE Congress(890864) * (2),and the another is the low-frequency brake groan (frequency 200-500Hz). In this paper,the brake groan has been discussed by constituting the theoretical model,in order to clarify the cause of disc brake groan noise. According to the previous study(3), the groan noise has been occurred by the increase of the disc temperature which has influenced on the disc width and the disc material. On the other hand, the groan noise can be observed in the condition of atmosphere temperature indeed. So that the precise phenomenon and cause should be defined. After observing the groan noise on the test bench, we have constructed the theoretical model and taken the numerical method. Finally we have obtained the equation representing the energy E,the increase of kinetic energy during one cycle of the system vibration. We have found that the groan noise has been generated under the condition of E > 0, and that the factors influencing on the groan noise,have been clarified by considering the above equation of E.
