The problem is to design a front brake system for Norster 600R according to following considerations: Brake force distribution Brake distance Max. brake temperature requirements


Missions of the front brake system design are given below: Selection of friction material Foundation brake design Heat transfer analysis

At this project, we will design a disc brake for front brake system. To design a disc brake, we must calculate the following system parameters: Number of pistons Brake cylinder area Brake rotor/Brake pad dimensions Lining friction material and friction coefficient Brake factors Front brake line pressure

After all these calculations, disc brake design will be completed with the heat transfer analysis.

THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE General uses of the brakes can be formulated in terms of three basic functions a braking system must provide:

1. Decelerate a vehicle including stopping. 2. Maintain vehicle speed during downhill operation. 3. Hold a vehicle stationary on a grade. Deceleration involves the change of the kinetic and potential energy (if any) of a vehicle into thermal energy. Important factors a brake design engineer must consider include braking stability, brake force distribution, tire/road friction utilization, braking while turning, pedal force modulation, stopping distance, in-stop fade and brake wear.

Maintaining vehicle speed on a hill involves the transfer of potential into thermal energy. Important considerations are brake temperature, lining fade, brake fluid vaporization in hydraulic brakes and brake adjustment of air brakes.

Holding a vehicle stationary on a grade with the parking brake is mainly a problem of force transmission between the application lever and the tire. However, since a parking brake may be used for vehicle deceleration in an emergency, both thermal and vehicle dynamic factors must be considered by the design engineer.

DISC BRAKES The disc brake is the best brake we have found so far. Disc brakes are used to stop everything from cars to locomotives and jumbo jets. Disc brakes wear longer, are less affected by water, are self adjusting, self cleaning, less prone to grabbing or pulling and stop better than any other system around. The main components of a disc brake are:

The brake pads The caliper, which contains a piston The rotor, which is mounted to the hub

Disc Brake Components

Brake Pads: There are two brake pads on each caliper. They are constructed of a metal "shoe" with the lining riveted or bonded to it. The pads are mounted in the caliper, one on each side of the rotor. Brake linings used to be made primarily of asbestos because of its heat absorbing properties and quiet operation; however, due to health risks, asbestos has been outlawed, so new materials are now being used.

Brake pads wear out with use and must be replaced periodically. There are many types and qualities of pads available. The main differences between these types are brake life (how long the new pads will last) and noise (how quiet they are when you step on the brake). Harder linings tend to last longer and stop better under heavy use but they may produce an irritating squeal when they are applied.

Brake Pads

If the lining wears down until to the metal brake shoe, then there will be a "Metal-to-Metal" condition where the shoe rubs directly against the rotor causing severe damage and loss of braking efficiency. Some brake pads come with a "brake warning sensor" that will emit a squealing noise when the pads are worn to a point where they should be changed. This noise will usually be heard when your foot is off the brake and disappear when you step on the brake. If you hear this noise, have your brakes checked as soon as possible.

Calipers: There are two main types of calipers: Floating calipers and fixed calipers. There are other configurations but these are the most popular. Calipers must be rebuilt or replaced if they show signs of leaking brake fluid.

Single piston floating calipers are the most popular and also least costly to manufacture and service. A floating caliper "floats" or moves in a track in its support so that it can center itself over the rotor. As you apply brake pressure, the hydraulic fluid pushes in two directions. It forces the piston against the inner pad which in turn pushes against the rotor. It also pushes the caliper in the opposite direction against the outer pad, pressing it against the other side of the rotor. Floating calipers are also available on some vehicles with two pistons mounted on the same side. Two piston floating calipers are found on more expensive cars and can provide an improved braking "feel".

Brake Caliper

Four Piston Fixed Calipers are mounted rigidly to the support and are not allowed to move. Instead, there are two pistons on each side that press the pads against the rotor. Four piston calipers have a better feel and are more efficient, but are more expensive to produce and cost more to service. This type of caliper is usually found on more expensive luxury and high performance cars. Rotor: The disc rotor is made of iron with highly machined surfaces where the brake pads contact it. Just as the brake pads wear out over time, the rotor also undergoes some wear, usually in the form of ridges and groves where the brake pad rubs against it. This wear pattern exactly matches the wear pattern of the pads as they seat themselves to the rotor.

When the pads are replaced, the rotor must be machined smooth to allow the new pads to have an even contact surface to work with. Only a small amount of material can be machined off of a rotor before it becomes unusable and must be replaced. A minimum thickness measurement is stamped on every rotor and the technician doing the brake job will measure the rotor before and after machining it to make sure it does not go below the legal minimum. If a rotor is cut below the minimum thickness, it will not be able to handle the high heat that brakes normally generate. This will cause the brakes to "fade," greatly reducing their effectiveness to a point where you may not be able to stop!


DRUM BRAKES The main reason why drum brakes are still used, is cost. While all vehicles produced for many years have disk brakes on the front, drum brakes are cheaper to produce for the rear wheels. The other reason is the parking brake system. On drum brakes, adding a parking brake is the simple addition of a lever, while on disk brakes, we need a complete mechanism, in some cases, a complete mechanical drum brake assembly inside the disk brake rotor! Parking brakes must be a separate system that does not use hydraulics.

Drum brakes consist of a backing plate, brake shoes, brake drum, wheel cylinder, return springs and an automatic or self-adjusting system. When you apply the brakes, brake fluid is forced, under pressure, into the wheel cylinder which, in turn, pushes the brake shoes into contact with the machined surface on the inside of the Drum. When the pressure is released, return springs pull the shoes back to their rest position. As the brake linings wear, the shoes must travel a greater distance to reach the drum. When the distance reaches a certain point, a self-adjusting mechanism automatically reacts by adjusting the rest position of the shoes so that they are closer to the drum

Drum Brake Components

OTHER UNITS Master Cylinder is located in the engine compartment on the firewall, directly in front of the drivers seat. A typical master cylinder is actually two completely separate master cylinders in one housing, each handling two wheels. This way if one side fails, you will still be able to stop the car. The brake warning light on the dash will light if either side fails, alerting you to the problem. Master cylinders have become very reliable and rarely malfunction (fault); however, the most common problem that they experience is an internal leak. This will cause the brake pedal to slowly sink to the floor when your foot applies steady pressure. Letting go of the pedal and immediately stepping on it again brings the pedal back to normal height.

Master Cylinder

Brake Fluid is special oil that has specific properties. It is designed to withstand cold temperatures without thickening as well as very high temperatures without boiling. (If the brake fluid should boil, it will cause you to have a spongy pedal and the car will be hard to stop.) Brake fluid must meet standards that are set by the Department of Transportation (DOT). Each standard (DOT-3, DOT-4 vs.) has different boiling point. For instance, DOT-3 has a dry boiling point 205C and wet boiling point 140C.

The brake fluid reservoir is on top of the master cylinder. Most cars today have a transparent reservoir so that you can see the level without opening the cover. The brake fluid level will drop slightly as the brake pads wear. This is a normal condition and no cause for concern. If the level drops noticeably over a short period of time or goes down to about two thirds full, brakes should be checked as soon as possible. Brake fluid must maintain a very high boiling point .Exposure to air will cause the fluid to absorb moisture which will lower that boiling point.

Brake Lines: The brake fluid travels from the master cylinder to the wheels through a series of steel tubes and reinforced rubber hoses. Rubber hoses are only used in places that require flexibility, such as at the front wheels, which move up and down as well as steer. The rest of the system uses non-corrosive seamless steel tubing with special fittings at all attachment points. If a steel line requires a repair, the best procedure is to replace the complete line. If this is not practical, a line can be repaired using special splice fittings that are made for brake system repair. Usage of the brass compression fittings or copper tubing to repair a brake system is dangerous and illegal.

Proportional Valve: These valves are mounted between the master cylinder and the rear wheels. They are designed to adjust the pressure between the fronts and rear brakes depending on how hard you are stopping. The shorter you stop, the more of the vehicle's weight is transferred to the front wheels, in some cases, causing the rear to lift and the front to dive. These valves are designed to direct more pressure to the front and less pressure to the rear the harder you stop. This minimizes the chance of premature lockup at the rear wheels. Pressure Differential Valve: This valve is usually mounted just below the master cylinder and is responsible for turning the brake warning light on when it detects a malfunction. It measures the pressure from the two sections of the master cylinder and compares them. Since it is mounted ahead of the proportioning or equalizer valve, the two pressures it detects should be equal. If it detects a difference, it means that there is probably a brake fluid leak somewhere in the system.

Combination valve: It is simply a proportioning valve and a pressure differential valve that is combined into one unit.

Combination Valve (Sliding Caliper)

The power brake booster is mounted on the firewall directly behind the master cylinder and, along with the master cylinder, is directly connected with the brake pedal. Its purpose is to amplify the available foot pressure applied to the brake pedal so that the amount of foot pressure required to stop even the largest vehicle is minimal. Power for the booster comes from engine vacuum. The automobile engine produces vacuum as a byproduct of normal operation and is freely available for use in powering accessories such as the power brake booster. Vacuum enters the booster through a check valve on the booster. The check valve is connected to the engine with a rubber hose and acts as a one-way valve that allows vacuum to enter the booster but does not let it escape. The booster is an empty shell that is divided into two chambers by a rubber diaphragm. There is a valve in the diaphragm that remains open while your foot is off the brake pedal so that vacuum is allowed to fill both chambers. When you step on the brake pedal, the valve in the diaphragm closes, separating the two chambers and another valve opens to allow air in the chamber on the brake pedal side. This is what provides the power assist.

Power Brake Booster

Power boosters are very reliable and cause few problems of their own; however, other things can contribute to a loss of power assist. In order to have power assist, the engine must be running. If the engine stalls or shuts off while you are driving, you will have a small reserve of power assist for two or three pedal applications but, after that, the brakes will be extremely hard to apply and you must put as much pressure as you can to bring the vehicle to a stop.


Total Braking Distance Total braking distance for the case of the maximum speed of the vehicle is assumed 120 m and to provide that a deceleration value is calculated. The total travelled distance during braking is calculated by formulas on below;

According to results (see 4.RESULTS part) maximum temperature rise is about 135-140 C which is very below of the critical temperature of the selected material, and so required conditions for thermal considerations are satisfied.

This project presents the outline of the front brake design for Norster 600R. It is concluded that hydraulic brake system in all car are same with little different in components structure like pad materials and rotor material. The researches on brake pad materials stated that commercial composition of the pad cannot be concluded whether is preferable to contain organic or semi metallic brake pads contain more copper. Both organic and semimetallic may contain copper although specific amounts will depend on the manufacturer. Found that contact areas also increase as wear develops. This corresponds to the reduction of roughness values of the pad surface. For the dimensions of the brake system components general assumptions are made according to Brake Design and Safety (R.Limpert).The most important criteria for the rotor and inherently for the other parts is the rim diameter of the wheel. Reducing the rotor width and a ventilated design achieve reduce in weight and also improvement of cooling characteristics. After the specifications of the dimensions of the brake assembly parts, actuating force, braking torque, equivalent radius and force location values were calculated and there is no critical values are observed for the selected material. And then, thermal analysis was done for the brake system and the maximum temperature rise in case of a hard braking condition was calculated. Results show that, there is no risk of overheating and possibility of hazardous condition with respect to material properties. Finally, engineering drawings were made by using Catia for the parts which were designed. In engineering drawing, was not entered into details and the other parts such as bolts, pistons etc. were not shown. Drawings of the main components which are rotor, caliper and pads were done and general dimensions of the part were indicated in the drawings.
