Brake Heating and Cooling Simulation - Webinar

The brake assembly is a complex, critical system of every moving vehicle, consisting of brake pads, inner and outer pad shims, caliper body, caliper bracket, piston booth, piston seal, brake fluid, and cooling air ducts. As the brakes are applied, the system can experience extreme temperatures that can adversely affect its performance, reliability, and — most importantly — safety.

Discover how you can use ANSYS Fluent to compute the transient temperature distribution in the main components of a complex brake assembly during operation. Learn how you can simulate the cooling process of the heated brake after cycling, which is also important for safety. With this data from ANSYS Fluent, you can optimize your brake assembly design quickly, easily and confidently.
