Various parameters affect performance of disc, out of those three main parameters are pressure applied on pad, coefficient of friction at pad-disc interface and temperature generated due to friction at interface. It was decided to check these parameter effect by simulating them using Explicit Dynamics code LS-Dyna. Simulation is effective in a way as the cycle time for final product design and its validation can be reduced significantly. Also it aids to reduced prototyping cost. Simulation and Experimentation was carried out to monitor the effect of these parameters for structural and thermal analysis of disc brakes. The selected disc brake under study is of Pulsar 150 Bike. The Simulation and Analytical outcomes of the project are presented in the paper along with experimental validation planned in course.
