Modeling Brake Squeal
Vehicle brakes can generate several kinds of noises. Eliminating brake noise is a classic challenge in the automotive industry. Brake discs develop large and sustained friction-induced oscillations, referred to simply as brake squeal. Many engineering approaches have been implemented to attack the problem. One example is the complex eigenvalue method by which squeal propensity is quantified by the dynamic instability of a certain system mode. During this webinar, these three different modeling approaches along with their pros and cons and best practices will be discussed.
