Two calculation schemes for determination of thermal stresses due to frictional heating during braking

Aleksander Yevtushenko, Michał Kuciej
Thermal stresses in three-element (disc/pad/metal slice) and two-element (disc/pad) models of frictional heating during braking are analysed. Evolutions and distributions of the lateral normal stresses in depth from the surface of friction are studied for the following frictional system materials: cast iron/ metal ceramics/steel and metal ceramics/cast iron.
Keywords: braking; friction; heat generation; temperature; thermal stresses
