Safety aspect in automotive engineering has been considered as a number one priority in development of new vehicle. Each single system has been studied and developed in order to meet safety requirement. Instead of having air bag, good suspension systems, good handling and safe cornering, there is one most critical system in the vehicle which is brake systems. Without brake system in the vehicle will put a passenger in unsafe position. Therefore. it is a must for all vehicles to have proper brake system. Due to critical system in the vehicle, many of researchers have conducted a study on brake system and its entire component. In this project. the author has conducted a study on ventilated disc brake rotor of normal passenger vehicle with full load of capacity. The study is more likely concern of heat and temperature distribution on disc brake rotor. Steady state and transient response has been conducted through the heat transfer analysis where to predict the worse case scenario and temperature behaviours of disc brake rotor. In this study, finite element analysis approached has been conducted in order to identify the temperature distributions and behaviours of disc brake rotor in steady state and transient responses. ABAQUS/CAE and MSC PATRAN/NASTRAN has been used as finite elements softwares to perform the thermal analysis on both responses. Both results have been compared for better justification. Thus, both results provide better understanding on the thermal characteristic of disc brake rotor and assist the automotive industry in developing optimum and effective disc brake rotor.
