Asia Brake Conference and Exhibition is the premier forum for the professionals interested in all aspects of brake and friction industry. The conference is designed to bring together global and regional industry leaders, academics, researchers, development engineers, application engineers, quality engineers, process and manufacturing engineers, sales and marketing professionals, strategic planners, business managers and owners, all working in the field of braking systems, brakes and friction materials.
Here is what you will get from joining Asia Brake Conference and Exhibition :
Mr. S.K. Mahindroo is presently working as Senior Vice-President, Chassis Division, R&D, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. He has done his B.Tech. Mechanical Engg. from IIT, Delhi in 1986 & has very rich experience of about 31 years now in India’s top Automobile company Maruti Suzuki.
He has achieved many milestones during his vast experience. He has been instrumental in developing the Indian Auto Component Industry from very nascent stage in 1986 to today. In the initial days, brought the concept of Joint ventures & set up all Joint Ventures of Maruti & also worked in various areas of Supply Chain.
From Last 15 years, working in R&D. Again brought the new concept of Total Cost Management & Zero Based Costing at Maruti & created a strong Cost Management Division at Maruti. Also, worked in various other areas in R&D including Prototyping, BOM, Digital Mock up etc. He has also been Chief Engineer for present Celario model from Maruti Side. From Last 4 years, heading the Chassis Division in R&D responsible for all Steering, Suspension & Brakes Designing, Development & Testing for all Maruti Models.
He is also member of Innovation Centre at IIT, Delhi helping students to do innovative projects.
He is regularly representing India in the GRRF meetings at United Nations, Geneva (world Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations). He is also a member of Automotive Board of Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE).
Nano-particles- the buzz word has entered every aspect of life including friction materials. Such particles bear a correlation with friction materials in two ways. First, in the form of emission as wear debris in the environment, water bodies etc. and second; in the form of constituents. The talk depicts on both the aspects and finally focuses on pros and cons of deliberate inclusion in friction materials.
BrakeHumidity significantly affects physical properties and friction/wear/NVH characteristics of NAO and Low-Steel Lomets disc pads. These effects and their practical implications will be discussed.
Brake performance is usually attributed to brake linings, focussing on the friction coefficient to adjust their formulation. On the other hand, as friction is a result of energy dissipation involved within third-body layers, which are provided by the wear of the friction pair, wear is highly responsible of braking behavior. The role of wear will be discussed from some illustrative experiments related to friction-induced vibrations, focussing on how wear mechanisms and related third-body flows change the friction interface, helping lead the way in understanding the friction behavior.
The cosmetic and corrosive effect of brake dust is reported so often that JD Power now list it as a quality issue and an annoyance to customers - “because it simply does not go away”. Brake dust is also attributed to NVH issues and the generation of brake noise. Its generation and emissions to atmosphere has initiated extensive international research which has conclusively identified it as a health hazard, resulting in cacogenic and mutagenic effects. The US States of California and Washington have introduced a bill that aims to reduce hazardous elements emitted from brakes with the conclusion to “control at source” – the automotive industry’s responsibility. This paper looks at the ongoing issues of brake dust emissions, the likely “Vehicle Total Emissions” legislation and a potential solution.
Onset of brake induced squeal and vibration is discussed based on the experimental results and molecular level simulations. Our studies show that the friction oscillation at the sliding interface triggers the brake vibration and squeal, which is amplified at resonant frequency of a braking system. In this panel discussion, the mechanism for brake induced noise and vibration will be presented focusing on the mechanical properties of the friction material and topographical information of the pad surface.
After several decades of research on brake squeal, there is still no solutions for “squeal free” brake systems. While the dynamic conditions leading to the system instability are identified and numerical tools have been developed to predict and modify the system unstable dynamics, the complex and time variable dynamics of a brake system does not allow for a robust design. New approaches are needed for avoiding the onset and grow of the vibrations of dynamically unstable brake systems. The coupling between the local contact dynamics and the system dynamic response is one of the key topics to search for effective solutions.
The classic description of friction is based on the vision of a stationary process. In fact, nearly no friction process is stationary. Especially at high load contacts, such as in brakes, the dynamic friction interface is essential. It generates dynamic effects of friction, which can be described by simple balance equations. This explains characteristic effects of real brakes.
