A brake disc rotor forms a part of foundation brake and rotates with the wheel hub assembly. The main function of a foundation brake is to generate a retarding torque by converting mechanical energy to thermal energy by virtue of the frictional work done in relative sliding at the rotor pad interface. In practice, most of the brake discs are made from cast iron and sometimes subjected to high structural and thermal stresses, which can lead to permanent plastic deformation and occasionally rotor cracking. The aim of this paper is to analysis the brake disc under calculated brake torque, temperature and heat flux. A commercial vehicle of 9.6 T is considered for calculation. It is necessary to carry out finite element approach in order to evaluate the exact stress distribution and make sure that the stress values are well below the allowable limits.
