Abstract: The main purpose of this study is to analyze the thermo-mechanical behavior of the brake disc during the braking phase. Brakes must undergo through continuous use, so many issues surround their heating characteristics when it comes to their development, including contact region properties, material choice, and development of hot spots, associated physical geometry, and deformations. The coupled thermal-structural analysis is used to determine the deformation and the Von Misses stress established in the disc to enhance performance and life of the rotor disc. A comparison between analytical calculations and results obtained from Finite Element Analysis (ANSYS) is done and the values obtained from the analysis are in the range of allowable values. The experiment has been performed with different disc-geometries. Based on the experiment results we have performed ANSYS simulation for the disc-brake. Hence best suitable optimum design is suggested based on the performance, strength and rigidity criteria.
