Abstract

A disc brake is a device for reducing the speed or stopping the rotation of a wheel. A brake disc (or rotor) usually made of cast iron or ceramic composites are connected to the wheel hub. Friction causes the disc and attached wheel to slow or stop. The thermal and mechanical properties of disc in disc brake are an important factor. There are many types of disc brake. Each one is different of braking performance. So the factors influencing the performance should be found out and a better new or modified disc brake material is created. The defects in existing disc brake are enormous. In order to rectify most of all these defects a new modified disc is modeled using Catia. Finite Element Analysis for the modified composite is done using Ansys software and the experimental works such as stress, hardness, micro structural analysis are carried out.
