Brake Squeal Reduction Using Robust Design
This paper discusses a standard procedure to reduce brake squeal using CAE and robust synthesis & analysis techniques. There are several techniques available to evaluate the stability of a system. Complex eigenvalue analysis is used for predicting and reducing squeal propensity. The complex eigenvalue method was implemented using SOL110 in version 2001 of MSC/NSTRAN for this study. We applied the signal to noise ratio using an orthogonal matrix to evaluate the main parameter effects and minimize the sensitivity.
