Controlled Brake Component Development Process 980238
A system engineering process has been applied to brake system hydraulic components, allowing rapid prototype development with minimal hardware iterations. Early application and validation of math based models, together with the use of ‘flexible’ hydraulic configurations, provides for a wide range of functionality. This allows the limits of performance to be established early in the development process. The process has been used to develop a variety of brake system hydraulic components, including proportional valves, pressure relief valves and pumps.
