Numerical optimization for internal expanding brake
Vanderplaats, G. N.
MetadataShow full item record
This report deals with design optimization of internal-expanding rim brakes. A computer program was developed to calculate the actuating force, torque, stopping time and drum temperature. The drum temperature is calculated by the finite difference method. A comparison of results has been made using a simplified equation that is in common use in engineering texts. Numerical optimization is shown to be a convenient tool for brake design.
