Analysis of Temperature Distribution Behavior of Motorcycle Brake Pads
The gradual phasing-out of asbestos in motorcycles brake friction materials in many parts of the world has sparked the onset of extensive research and development into safer alternatives. As a result, the brake friction industry has seen the birth of different brake pads and shoes in the past decade, each with their own unique composition, yet performing the very same task and claiming to be better than others. This suggests that the selection of the brake pad design geometry surface is based more on original shape and simulation trial and error rather than fundamental understanding. This analysis strives to eliminate the cloud of uncertainty by providing an insight into the pros and cons of the geometry surface shape of motorcycle brake pad and make-up used in contemporary temperature behavior distribution on pads and shoes. In this analysis brake pad designs are reviewed and their advantages and disadvantages in contemporary brake applications are discussed.

First and foremost, all praise be to Allah, the Almighty, the Benevolent for His blessing and guidance for giving us inspiration to embark on this project and instilling in all of us the strength to see this final year project (Analysis of Temperature Distribution Behavior of Motorcycle Brake Pads). Many people have contributed to the creation and completion of this research. We would like to express our gratitude to our supervisor, Mr. Khairul Shahril, because he gives all his effort to conduct us as from the beginning until we finish up our research. He also gives us a lot of guidance and support. We are especially indebted and grateful to the lectures of mechanical department, UniKL MSI. This project gave me an opportunity to participate and learn about the basic and advance skill of handling the great software there are SOLIDWORKS and ANSYS. Special thanks to all my friends for their understanding and support on me in completing this research. Without helps of the particular that mentioned above, i would face many difficultly while doing this.
