Guner et al. (2004) have developed a cost effective approach to investigate brake system parameters. They have Investigated the dynamic and thermal behavior of the braking phenomenon by establishing a dynamic model. Roberts and Day (2000) have established a new systematic approach to design-evaluation-test product development cycle wherein the vehicle design and simulation environments are integrated. Limpert (1999) has developed models for determining the temperature rise during single stop, continuous and repeated braking. Ramachandra Rao et al. (1993) have simulated the temperature distribution and brake torque developed in a brake drum using finite element methods. They have observed a good agreement between the simulated results and the observations carried out using an inertia dynamometer. Ilinca et al. (2001) have determined the effect of contact area on the temperature distribution in brake drum which results in wear and deformation of brake drum.
