Sample text

It is standard practice to complete a friction material test sequence by repeating a test at the start conditions to check the ‘recovery’ (see Chapter 9). Data from tests like these can be used to define friction models for use in computational analyses. There are many other operational and environmental conditions that can influence frictional performance. Water can have two opposing effects: high humidity can raise m, so that a vehicle’s brakes can appear to be very sharp (and noisy) on cold damp mornings, but a few applications can raise the temperature, dry off the water, and bring m down to the normal operating level.

Aerodynamic down thrust. The magnitude of the weight transfer depends upon the vehicle’s deceleration, so when the vehicle is not decelerating (rate of braking z ¼ 0), the weight transfer term is zero. 4: Effect of Braking Weight Transfer on Normal Reactions at the Front and Rear Wheels of a Passenger Car (Per Wheel). more weight transfer to the front wheels while braking than a long low vehicle. e. the dip of the vehicle bonnet during braking. Suspension design can incorporate anti-dive geometry to reduce the dip effect, but the weight transfer is still there.
