Abstract: In this present work the temperature fields and structural fields of the solid brake disc during short and emergency braking with four different materials have been analyzed. The distribution of the temperature depends on the various factors such as friction, mechanical properties of material, design of the brake disc, surface roughness and speed. We analyzed the different values of temperature, total deformation, the equivalent strain – stress and deformation for different designs and different materials using analysis software called Ansys with materials namely Stainless-Steel SS 420, SS 316 and Aluminium Al 6061, Al 7075. With the value at the hand the values are determined for best suitable material for the brake disc with higher life span. This work determines the shape and size optimized for disc brake along with chosen material for efficient disc with a better life span. Three different discs were designed with four different materials to produce a wide range of conclusions.
