In recent years have been the speed, comfort and safety of rail transport significantly increased. This asks for higher demands on reliability and safety of rail vehicles parts meeting. The important is research the properties of brake pair, therefore build specialized test equipment, where it is possible to programmatically load wheels, wheelset, bogie or complete vehicles. Tests on the friction test stand brake represent a special group, which replace the expensive tests of complete vehicles, that are more costly. The test stand brake allows the implementation of experimental tests of the actual brake units and components under simulated conditions.
