We Now Understand Why Our Car Brake Discs Suffer From Thermal Distortion – Coning!!

作者: 访问量:216时间:2020-07-21

Our new work has demonstrated that the bulk airflow within the ventilated channel of a rotating brake disc with pin-fins at realistic rotation speeds for braking (i.e., from 100rpm to 300rpm) follows a predominantly backwards sweeping inline-like path between the pin-fins. Internal local heat transfer is distributed non-uniformly on both inboard and outboard surfaces, with twice higher average cooling from the outboard surface than the inboard surface: this possibly exacerbates the thermal stresses, which leads to thermal distortion of the rotor (i.e., coning).
