Replicating Brake Cooling Tests by using Coupled CAE Simulations
Paper i proceeding, 2019

The present paper provides an overview of the different steps implemented to develop a simulation procedure which aims at replicating the Alpine descent brake cooling performance test. The Alpine descent brake cooling performance test is a driving scenario where brakes are continuously applied at down-hill driving for a prolong time when going down from a mountain. Results are presented and compared to experimental data obtained from the on-road testing. The comparison shows that the developed method is capable of predicting trends and deltas when doing case studies at concept phase of vehicle development. One of the examples of such studies presented in this paper is the effect of different rim designs on the brake cooling performance.
