In this paper the simulative model of the friction lining wear process in a winding gear, post type, brake is presented. In the modelling procedure, the wear characteristics of the friction materials and the brake variables typical for winding brakes, for example, the elastic property of the brake elements were taken into consideration. The modelling of the friction lining wear process was used to predict associated changes in the pressure distribution, and other mechanical characteristics of the brake system.
