Brake Thermal Analysis
Brake thermal analysis can be performed using the basic heat transfer equations, finite deference
technique, and finite element method. FIG 5 compares the SCA rotor and the cast iron rotor with and
without an aluminum wheel connected during repeated braking using the basic heat transfer equations.
This analysis reveals that the connected aluminum wheel can lower the brake temperature several
hundred degree down for the SCA rotor than the cast iron rotor.
