Explains in stages a new concept of BFMC Brake friction material composite
Explains friction from the basic to the latest understanding at the nanolevel applied to braking needs
Defines the system as non linear supported with the detailed test results and with many illustrations
Discusses in detailed processes and route selection based on material sensitivities and functional requirements
Gives clear instructions to auto industry for designing the brake system
Friction Material Composites is the first of the five volumes which strongly educates and updates engineers and other professionals in braking industries, research and test labs. It explains besides the formulation of design processes and its complete manufacturing input. This book gives an idea of mechanisms of friction and how to control them by designing .The book is useful for designers of automotive, rail and aero industries for designing the brake systems effectively with the integration of friction material composite design which is critical. It clearly emphasizes the driving safety and how serious designers should select the design input. The significance of friction material component like brake pad or a liner as an integral part of the brake system of vehicles is explained. AFM pictures at nanolevel illustrate broadly the explanations given.
