The disc brake is a device for slowing or stopping the rotation of a wheel. Repetitive braking of the vehicle leads to heat generation during each braking event. Transient Thermal and Structural Analysis of the Rotor Disc of Disk Brake is aimed at evaluating the performance of disc brake rotor of a car under severe braking conditions and there by assist in disc rotor design and analysis. Disc brake model and analysis is done using ANSYS workbench 14.5. The main purpose of this study is to analysis the thermomechanical behavior of the dry contact of the brake disc during the braking phase. The coupled thermal-structural analysis is used to determine the deformation and the Von Mises stress established in the disc for the both solid and ventilated disc with two different materials to enhance performance of the rotor disc. A comparison between analytical and results obtained from FEM is done and all the values obtained from the analysis are less than their allowable values. Hence best suitable design, material and rotor disc is suggested based on the performance, strength and rigidity criteria.
