In the wide range of braking speed, the disc brakes are subjected to temperature variation and thermal loading. Different modelling approaches ranging from a simple lumped parameter model to complex three-dimensional models are available for the thermal analysis of the disc brakes. Based on the review of the above models, a model has been developed and formulated for the analysis of thermal loading of disc brake. The developed model is proposed to couple with a model for the thermal distortion of disc brake. It is also proposed to conduct the necessary experiments and thermal analysis to validate the results obtained from the synthesized analysis.
