In this paper, a formulation for the rate of heat generation due to the contact of one asperity with asperities on a second surface is proposed. A statistical approach is used to obtain the heat generation rate due to one asperity and employed to develop the equation for generation of heat rate between two rough surfaces. This heat rate formulation between the two rough surfaces has been incorporated into the 2D lumped parameter model of disk pair in dry friction developed by Elhomani and Farhang (2010, “A 2D Lumped Parameter Model for Prediction of Temperature in C/C Composite Disk Pair in Dry Friction Contact,” ASME J. Therm. Sci. Eng. Appl., 2(2), p. 021001). In this paper, the disk brake is viewed as consisting of three main regions: (1) the surface contact, (2) the friction interface, and (3) the bulk. Both surfaces of the disk brake are subjected to frictional heating. This model is considered to be a necessary step for simulating the aircraft braking system that consists of a stack of multiple disks.
