Unformatted text preview: maximum allowable temperature. a) Determine the ratio of band forces for the given brake lining material and geometry. Check that the brake design is not self-locking. b) Determine the required braking torque to achieve the stopping distance by balancing the kinetic energy with the brake dissipation energy. c) Solve for the band forces, then using the geometry, solve for the required actuating force. d) Solve for the minimum band width to avoid exceeding the maximum allowable pressure. e) Based on the dissipation energy found in part (d), find the minimum rim mass (assume cast iron) to avoid exceeding the maximum allowable temperature. F a...
