Brakes are one of the most important control component of vehicle. They are a mechanical device in which friction torque is used to slowdown or stop the rotating member. They are required to stop the vehicle within the smallest possible distance and this is done by converting the kinetic energy of the vehicle into the heat energy which is must be dissipated into the atmosphere. Disc brakes in the vehicles give much better performance compare to drum to stop the vehicle. Heat generated during braking force can be easily dissipated to atmosphere. But the main problem is with the material used in the disc brakes in some vehicle. Analysis of the contact pressure distributions at the disc interfaces using a detailed 3-dimensional finite element model. Finite element (FE) models of brake-disc rotor are created using CATIAV5R20 and simulated using ANSYS 18.2. The main aim of this thesis is to improve the strength of the disc by taking various materials for analysis. and the materials like Aluminum Nitride, Silicon Nitride, Aluminium Alloy ALSI 398, Aluminium Alloy 1300, Silicon Carbide, Aluminum Oxide, Zirconium Oxide and Composite materials Carbon fibre are taken. And these are the materials which are used for comparison the material behaviour on stress, deformation, heat flux, displacement, elastic stress, and strain and carried out the behavior of maximum and minimum level then we get Carbon fiber is best materials other than materials because its durability and light weight.
