Abstract

Braking is a process which converts the kinetic energy of the vehicle into mechanical energy which must be dissipated in the form of heat. During the braking phase, the frictional heat generated at the interface disc-pads can lead to high temperatures. This high temperature rise of the rotor decreases the coefficient of friction between the rotor and pad, Brake fluid vaporization problem arises, component wear will be higher at higher temperature. So to remove the heat from rotor we use vented rotor now days, in vented rotor number of vanes have effect on mass flow rate through vented rotor. For this paper have taken one rotor with simple vane design and second having higher number of vanes with some design change considered after literature review.
