Frequency Response Function Measurement on Simplified Disc Brake Model

Open access


The paper describes role of non-proportional damping in flutter type instability, demonstrated on simplified disc brake model. The discrete two degrees of freedom system is considered to imply damping induced instability through a system eigenvalues evaluation. The Frequency Response Function (FRF) is further calculated from measurements on the physical disc brake model. From FRF, damping properties are estimated and discussed. Several different loading states of the pad versus disc are considered to show loading impact on FRF and thus damping of the system.
