The objectives of this third edition of an SAE classic title are
to provide readers with the basic theoretical fundamentals and analytical tools
necessary to design braking systems for passenger vehicles and
trucks that comply with safety standards, minimize consumer complaints, and
perform safely and efficiently before and while electronic brake
controls become active.
This book, written for students, engineers, forensic experts, and
brake technicians, provides readers with theoretical knowledge of braking
physics, and offers numerous illustrations and equations that make
the information easy to understand and apply.
New to this edition are expanded chapters on:
Thermal Analysis of
Analysis of Hydraulic Brake
Single Vehicle Braking
