A braking system is an important system for a vehicle To stop a vehicle, brake torque needs to be delivered
from the brake caliper to the disc brake which eventually stops the rotating wheels The torque produced by
the brake caliper needs to be greater than the torque produced at the wheels and therefore, to develop
efficient design parameters for a brake caliper, vehicle design parameters need to optimize so that optimum
torque can be generated at the wheels from vehicle design calculations Design and analysis of metallic based
brake caliper has been carried for an All-Terrain vehicle using Additive Manufacturing For design modeling,
Solidworks has been used and from the simulation manufacturing aspect, Ansys and Simufact have been
used to analyze the stress, displacement, and surface deviation In addition to that design and performance
optimization has been carried out in Solidworks Ansys, and Simufact respectively Force and Torque
the calculation has been carried out for the brake caliper using Matlab Fine Meshing has been carried out while
analyzing the brake caliper in Ansys and Simuafact for optimum efficiency in results The designed brake
caliper is optimum in terms of weight, cost, and efficiency.
