  • K. L. SundarkrishnaaEmail author
Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 171)


This chapter deals with the essential requirements of consideration in a friction material composite design. Torque computation with basic design engineering inputs for BFMC design are explained with calculations. It also gives some of the critical design inputs for BFMC design and development. Brake roughness measurements with AFM picture illustrations; besides DTV, RTV are explained in detail as their role is crucial in contact and contacting conditions of the brake design. A simple study on metallography of gray cast iron samples of the drum is discussed.
