Automotive disc brake squeal continues to present engineers with a complex problem despite having considerable resources targeted towards its resolution. Many researchers have made use of the finite element method (FEM) and its complex eigenvalue extraction technique to predict conditions under which the brake system become unstable. In this research, a new approach is proposed through an integrated study of non-linear contact pressure analysis, a fully coupled thermal analysis followed by instability study using the complex eigenvalue analysis method. An experimental investigation will be used to validate the numerical modelling results according to the industry standard SAE J2521 procedure. A parametric study on the geometrical effect and materials of brake components will provide design guidelines to reduce or eliminate squeal problems.
