Abstract : 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.
