Abstracts : Vehicle braking system is considered as one of the most fundamental safety-critical systems in modern vehicles as its main purpose is to stop or decelerate the vehicle. The frictional heat generated during braking application can cause numerous negative effects on the brake assembly such as brake fade, premature wear, thermal cracks and Disc Thickness Variation (DTV). In the past, surface roughness and wear at the pad interface have rarely been considered in studies of thermal analysis of a disc brake assembly using finite element method. Motivation of this project is to reduce the weight of disc rotor by replacing conventional materials with composites. The objective of this research is to design and manufacturing Aluminum metal matrix composite disc brake by using Stir casting method. AL6061 is used as a base alloy and Al2O3 matrix material. After manufacturing define thermal performance of disc brake models. Thermal performance was a key factor which was studied using the 3D model in Finite Element Analysis simulations. Experimental validation of FEA RESULTS will enable to understand how implemented disc brake works more efficiently, which can help to reduce the accident that may happen in each day.
