Munyaradzi Innocent Mupona | Ranjeet Singh Tomar

Abstract: Due to the advancement in technology and desire to provide motor vehicles that are lightweight, fuel efficient, environmentally friendly and economical, designers are now faced with innovative challenge to keep up the technological advancements in all aspects of motor vehicle design. This paper focuses on the evaluation of material to use for the brake disc design of a non-contact braking system for light weight motor vehicles while optimizing on braking efficiency and minimizing vehicle maintenance cost. The author made use of the available researches prior to the study so as to come up with the best material which can be used to make the application of this technology a success in light motor vehicles. After a detailed evaluation of the available materials, whilst looking at a multiplicity of factors such as cost, manufacturability, durability, environmental friendliness and applicability, aluminum was found to be the most suitable material for the application.
