Stress Analysis and Fatigue Live Prediction of a Disc Brake System
Analysis: FEA, Stress Analysis, Low Cycle and High Cycle Fatigue, Contact Analysis, ANSYS
Objective: Within the scope of an innovative vehicle brake system development of a non-linear static contact analysis of a brake assembly (250+ parts) was performed. Based on the assessment of the low-cycle and high-cycle fatigue few design changes were adopted, which eliminated potential problems limiting the fatigue design life before the manufacture of the prototype and its testing.
