Abstract:In recent experimental work it has been observed that the position of the centre of pressure (CoP) at the brake pad/disc interface has an influence on the onset of brake squeal. To determine the CoP during a braking event, a simple two-dimensional analytical model of the brake pad or more complex numerical finite element model of a disc brake are commonly used. This paper presents a new three-dimensional analytical model of a brake pad that determines the CoP position in both circumferential and radial directi… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
