Lattice Brake Disc Instability Analysis Using Transient Complex Eigenvalue Method in Terms of Excitation Applied to the Pad
This paper describes an integrated approach to the analysis of brake squeal with newly lattice brake disc design. The procedure adopted to define the lattice properties by considering the periodicity cell of lattice plates, present equations of motion and modes response of a periodic lattice disc in principal coordinates on the rotating disc which excited by distributed axial load. The non-linear contact problem is carried out based on a typical passenger car brake for vanned and lattice brake disc types as it undergoes a partial simulation of the SAE J2521 drag braking noise test. The experimental modal analysis (EMA) with impact hammer test is used to obtain the brake rotor modal properties and validated finite element Free- Free State and stability analysis. The fugitive nature of brake squeal is analyzed through the complex eigenvalue extraction technique to define dynamic instability.
