Evolution of Sintered Metallic Brake Pad Under the Effect of Thermomechanical Stresses is now available from Hoang-Long Le Tran, University of Lille, on the EuroBrake website. He answers a few related questions below:
What do you find most interesting about the topic you are presenting on?
The topic aims to resolve the evolution of brake bad material, which is an essential technical issue for improving the performance and the reliability of braking system. In this work, for the first time, a simplified experimental approach has been proposed to decouple the complex physics of braking sequence in order to investigate the relation between the mechanical properties evolution and microstructural evolution.
How has coronavirus affected your work and has it had a direct impact on the work you are presenting?
Due to Covid19 virus situation, our experiment plan for characterizing the microstructure evolution has been delayed.
Who do you think will be most interested in seeing your presentation and who would you most like to ask questions about it?
Our results would be interested by industry or researcher working on optimizing the structure and compositions of brake pad material.
I'm currently research engineer in metallic sintered materials at LaMCube (University of Lille). I received my Ph.D. degree in growth and characterization of carbides semiconductors from Grenoble-Alpes University in 2018 under the supervisor of Dr. Didier Chaussende and Dr. Eirini Sarigiannidou at LMGP (Grenoble INP). From 2019 until now, as a post-doctoral researcher at LaMCube, my focus is on the sintered metal matrix composite used for brake pad in high energy railways.
