In automotive field lots of studies are going on to conventional materials with the composites. Hence to reduce weight, Aluminium based metal matrix composite (MMC) found to be the best alternative for this. The motive of this study is to analyse the performance of disc brake for different materials (Cast iron & Aluminium6061-SiC-red mud composite) under same working conditions/parameters. And the material impact on displacement, stress, contact pressure, contact status, contact sliding distance of disc and pad assembly are obtained using software packages like ANSYS (14.5) and hypermesh.
