In brake FEM (Finite Element Method), model updating is often needed to improve the model accuracy and well describe problematic phenomena such as the squeal. To avoid performing a full model updating which is often time consuming, the use of the Minimum Dynamic Residual Expansion method is proposed to help building the updating strategy. The procedure proposed in this paper is evaluated on a disc brake system, using experimental measurements and the nominal model as input data. From experimental squeal measurements, two shapes are extracted and expanded on the current model. The evaluation of the residual error of model shows areas where the model is wrong and guides through the definition of sensitive parameters which need to be updated. Once the model is parameterized, a model reduction strategy is proposed for further computations to be performed in a time compatible with industrial processes. A parametric study is then achieved: the expansion is computed for all the combinations of the chosen parameters. It is finally possible to navigate through the expansion results for all the parameters, evaluate the evolution of the model accuracy and extract the best combination which improves the model representability.
