  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. Integrated brake control : downhill driving strategies

  4. 4. 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. Thermomechanics of block brakes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Thuresson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; friction; pin model; contact mechanics; brake; thermo camera; thermomechanical; wear; freight train.; finite element; temperature measurement;

    Abstract : Friction in sliding contacts plays an important role in tribology. Applications can be found in many engineering fields  such as braking of vehicles  in which friction brakes are by far the most common. Thus, an understanding of the mechanisms involved in friction brakes has become more important as the demands on brakes increase. READ MORE
