The thermal behaviour of a brake disc during a periodic sliding contact in braking situations is studied. The experimental tests are performed on a braking tribometer, on two types of materials used in railway applications: an organic matrix composite (OMC) for the pin and a grey cast iron for the disc. The mass temperature of the brake disc is measured 2 mm, 5 mm and 7 mm under the friction surface during a succession of stop brakings. Experimental data and an analytical model of thermal… CONTINUE READING
