Braking Dynamics (1 credit hours/1 HSW Hours)
The course describes the various basic calculations in brake design.  It explores the phenomena of kinetic energy conversion, braking force distribution, straight line braking, braking on a curve, weight transfer and scrub radius torque effects.  Both drum and disk brakes are discussed.  Causes and remedies for common brake problems are described.   Course explains how centrifugal force affects braking force distribution when braking on a curve. Course itemizes the main causes of brake pull and brake vibrations.
