  1. 1. Vehicle Disc Brake Roughness Noise Experimental Study of the Interior Noise andVibro-Acoustic Modelling of Suspension Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Eskil Lindberg; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; acoustics; disc brake; surface topography; wire brush noise; roughness noise; component mode synthesis; vehicle suspension;

    Abstract : Prediction of vehicle disc brake roughness noise is a non-trivial challenge. In fact, neither the source mechanisms, nor the transfer paths are so far well understood. READ MORE

  2. 2. Friction and contact phenomena of disc brakes related to squeal

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mikael Eriksson; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials science; Tribology; contact mechanics; squeal; brake pad; disc brake; friction; Materialvetenskap; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap; materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Abstract : Brake squeal is a sound with a main frequency between 1 and 20 kHz, generated by an oscillation of the components of the brake system. The energy driving the oscillation is supplied by the friction between the disc and the pads. READ MORE

  5. 5. Simulation of Thermal Stresses in a Brake Disc

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Asim Rashid; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : In this thesis thermal stresses in a brake disc during a braking operation are simulated. The simulations are performed by using a sequential approach where the temperature history generated during a frictional heat analysis is used as an input for the stress analysis. READ MORE
