Research on Contact Pressure Distribution of Pad
School of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering, South China University of Technology, Wushan Road No.381, Guangzhou, P.R.China.
A simplified thermo-structural coupling finite element model of disc brake was developed. The contact pressure distribution of new pad was simulated under an emergency braking condition. The result shows that the contact pressure distribution of pad is not uniform when the new pad is in normal working condition. The inhomogeneity of the contact pressure is a critical cause of tangential partial wear. Compared the contact pressure distribution of new pad, uniform wear pad and tangential partial wear pad, the influence of wear amount and tangential partial wear on the contact pressure of pad was investigated. The results prove that the influence of wear amount on the contact pressure of pad is very small, while tangential partial wear has a great influence on the contact pressure of pad. The wear and force characteristics of pad are analyzed. The wear of its life cycle of pad is obtained, and the reliability and accuracy of the simulation are verified.
