The braking performance is one of the most important active safety performances of the vehicle, which acts as a key part in the traffic guard. In this paper, numerical methods and analysis procedures are utilized throughout the study on automobile disc brake. The couple thermo-mechanical analyses are made out for unusual geometries of the ventilated brake discs to determine squeal and thermal stresses in the ANSYS. The different alternative designs and best material for different application of disk brake are proposed. For ventilation, the blade inclination angles are changed considering different angles. In this review paper, the optimization of the disc brake by weight reduction through the diligence of the external respiration in the solid type rotor is offered. The review paper shows that using ventilation the heat waste is increased and braking efficiency is increased.
