Key parameters with regard to the NVH behavior of brake discs are their natural frequency and damping behavior.
In particular, the dynamic modulus of elasticity usually is assumed as a constant value in the FE-calculation for cast iron. However, the raw material and the entire production process play an important role to set the young’s modulus and the damping. Due to the cooling effect, the parameters (stiffness and damping) can differ on the circumference of the disc. These parameters can be identified using different experimental methods after the test.
In this paper a physical background, theory and test methods will be discussed to understand the different methods to characterize brake discs.
