The disc brake is a device for slowing or stopping the rotation of a wheel. Repetitive braking of the vehicle leads to heat generation during each braking event. Transient Thermal Analysis of the Rotor Disc of Disk Brake is aimed at evaluating the performance of disc brake rotor of a car under severe braking conditions and there by assist in disc rotor design and analysis. Disc brake model and analysis is done using ANSYS workbench 16.0. The main purpose of this study is to analysis the thermo mechanical behaviour of the dry contact of the brake disc during the braking phase. The coupled thermal-structural analysis is used to determine the thermal stresses and to calculate the Heat fluxes in x-y-z planes. This is established Slotted type and analysis is done by taking two different components such as Cast Iron and Stainless Steel and comparing which material is best suited for making of a disc brake.
