Brake Discs are very complex components in regards of their composition, design, properties and also their manufacturing processes. Therefore, a new working group is established to start the work on friction relevant disc specifications.
Sub-tasks and correlating sub-teams were defined to initialize the work. In a first step, a general chapter in regards of nomenclature is prepared, as well as a screening of already existing standards from public domains is carried out. A special focus is given to NVH-relevant items to prepare best-practice recommendations for Eigenfrequency and damping determinations.
At Eurobrake 2020, recent work progress of this new working group is presented and discussed.
