The component known as a disc rotor is
utilize in automotive vehicle wheels to apply brakes.
Frictional resistance between the pad and the rotor is
what causes the brakes to work. The heat that is
produced between the disc and pad as a result of
frictional resistance must be reduced, hence the rotor is
made of a vented disc. Grey Cast Iron is the most typical
material utilize to make disc rotors. In this study, the
structural analysis of the disc brake rotor was carried
out using a variety of materials, including grey cast iron,
titanium, magnesium alloy, aluminium alloy, and
structural steel. Additionally, the study looked at various
disc brake rotor geometries, and a final conclusive
combination was recommended. The analysis was
completed using ANSYS WORKBENCH 18.0 for
structural analysis and CATIA for modelling. The
optimum material and design that may be used to
manufacture brake disc rotors have been determined via
comparisons using various factors, such as deformation
and equivalent stress.
