Structural and Thermal Analysis of Brake Disc
Viraj Parab,  Kunal Naik,  Prof A. D. Dhale
Disc(Rotor) brakes are exposed to large thermal stresses during routine braking and extraordinary thermal stresses during hard braking. The aim of the project is to design, model a disc. Modeling is done using catia. Structural and Thermal analysis is to be done on the disc brakes using three materials Stainless Steel and Cast iron & carbon carbon composite. Structural analysis is done on the disc brake to validate the strength of the disc brake and thermal analysis is done to analyze the thermal properties. Comparison can be done for deformation, stresses, temperature etc. form the three materials to check which material is best. Catia is a 3d modeling software widely used in the design process. ANSYS is general-purpose finite element analysis (FEA) software package. Finite Element Analysis is a numerical method of deconstructing a complex system into very small pieces (of user-designated size) called elements.
Keywords- rotor brake, catia, FEA, thermal analysis, static analysis.
