Effective Thermo-Structural Analysis for Disc Brake System Simulation

Open access


The evaluation of disk brake squeal is nowadays performed using Finite Element Model. In this standard procedure the thermal effects are omitted. The omission is done because of long computing time of fully coupled brake system thermo-structural transient analysis. This paper is presenting an effective uncoupled thermo-structural FEM procedure. This method is applied on a pin-on-disc system and its time effectiveness is compared to standard full coupled transient analysis.
