I have begun modelling a basic braking system in Simulink/Matlab for my final year project. The model is designed from the time force is exerted to the pedal at a particular velocity, to when heat is produced from the frictional force between the brake pad and disc.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the modelling equation for the heat produced from the frictional force, yet im not sure if its correct;

dW/dt = F*V(dS/dt)

where W is the work done with respect to time.

F is the frictional force,

S is displacement,

and V is velocity

My question is. Knowing the initial temperatures of the disc and pad, and knowing the coefficient of friction of the pad material, how can i measure the rate of heat dissipation over time, until the car reaches the desired stopping time limit?

I need it in an equation that can be implemented into simulink.

Im guessing its a first order differenitial//

any suggestions?

Thanks, H
