THERMOMECHANICAL STRESS ANALYSIS OF VEHICLES GRAY CAST BRAKE
A.Belhocine, M.Bouchetara(UDC: 62-592.11)
The main purpose of this study is to analyse the thermo-mechanical behavior of the dry contact between the brake disc and pads during the braking phase. The simulation strategy is based on computer code ANSYS11. The modeling of transient temperature in the disk is actually used to identify the factor of geometric design of the disk to install the ventilation system in vehicles. The thermal-structural analysis is then used coupling to determine the deformation established and the Von Mises stresses in the disk, the contact pressure distribution in pads. The results are satisfactory when compared to those found in the literature.
