Nowadays, a composite material is used as replacement of the conventional materials in Automobile industries because of high strength to light weight properties, which reduces the overall vehicle weight without compromising the strength and reliability. Composite materials with higher specific stiffness, low weight, and high damping capacity have greater torque capacity than conventional drive shaft. The advanced composite materials such as carbon and glass with epoxy resin are widely used because of their high specific strength and high specific modulus. The aim of this work is to replace the conventional asbestos brake pad of automobiles with an appropriate carbon/glass composite brake pad. Study also includes the preparation of composite brake pad for overall weight reduction, whereas the conventional asbestos brake pad has lots of issue related to environment. In this approach, optimum designed brake pad finite element model will be prepared in finite element commercial software ABAQUS. The noise, vibration and buckling analysis will be done which are very much essential for friction materials like brake pad Experiment also conducted on instrument to measure the vibration and mechanical properties of composite shaft.
