hey guys, i was wondering if any of you know the general values for the friction coefficient as well as the mass of the brake shoes and the spring constant for the centrifugal brakes (i know there are probably all sort of values, but please just give me a general rough estimate)? The brake is gonna be incoporated in a weight lowering mechanism of about 1000kg.

i tried to search for it, but cant find anything, so if anyone has knowledge in this field, please give me a rough estimate on the values, really appreciate it.
THANKS ALOT!!!
