    Abstract: Reduced thickness reduces the heat dissipation capacity of the brake disc and its mechanical strength, triggering a series of critical faults and failures. To determine the critical thickness for disc replacement, a transient analysis for contact problem of disc brakes with frictional heat was performed using finite element method. To analyze the e...
