Job title



Analysis of brake disc is carried out to depict the nature of Braking behavior with respect to bump, Analysis of brake disc is carried out to depict the behavior of the braking system with respect to bump, droop in endurance, maneuverability, hill Climb & acceleration. Design calculation and analysis have been carried out for the brake disc and subsequently, design calculations have also been carried out for the brake caliper. Structural, thermal, vibrational, computational fluid dynamics and fatigue analysis has been carried out to optimize and validate the performance of disc brakes. The design of experiments has been carried out for the brake disc in order to optimize the performance of the braking system. Ventilated disc brake with an outer diameter of 175 mm has been used and 83 % performance efficiency is achieved after all the proper validations and analysis. Very fine Meshing has been considered for analyzing the disc brake to obtain maximum efficient results. Stainless Steel (SS-410) Material configuration has been considered for disc brake and performance enhancement of ventilated disc brake is carried out using Matlab, Ansys, and Solidworks. The brake disc is going to be deployed as a common brake disc in the rear part of the ATV responsible for providing effective rear wheel locking. Piaggio double piston fixed calipers have satisfied the piston diameter for wheel locking conditions at rear wheels with DOT-4 Brake fluid in the master cylinder to provide effective braking. The rear disc brake was fixed on the gearbox output shaft and a caliper mount is welded on a rear member of the roll cage. A mathematical model has been generated for carrying out Multi-objective genetic algorithm optimization. The newly designed brake disc is optimum in terms of weight, a factor of safety, thermal dissipation, equivalent stress, vibration with enhanced airflow behavior. Converged residual plots have been obtained in computational fluid dynamics simulation by using 2nd-degree order. In order to meet the frequency of rear disc brake to firing frequency of engine, brake disc has been optimized in terms of vibration considering all the parameters.
