Hey it's about SAE Baja project

In summary, the conversation discusses the selection of a caliper for a tire with a 12-inch internal diameter and a 190mm disc. The speaker is seeking advice on whether to use a single or double cylinder caliper, but it is noted that more information is needed in order to make an informed decision. Factors such as maximum friction force, braking regime, and heat dissipation need to be considered in choosing the appropriate caliper for the brakes.

We are having the tires with internal dia of 12inches and disc of 190mm
Can someone suggest me the caliper we can use?

2. Should we use single cylinder or double cylinder calliper??

Welcome to PF abhinav3071,

Engineering is a discipline not a science, also know as a collection of good practices which are calculated up to point. (as much as you care about).

You give too little detail for any calculation, and the setup is largely unknown for anyone that sees this thread.

For brakes it is important to know the maximum friction force of the tire with the tarmac, sand, gravel etc. As that is the maximum breaking force and the calipers will be chosen according to that. Also braking regime, fast/often, slow/rare determines how much heat it needs to dissipate. A engineer will tell you from these details and lots more (there are many neccesary) which of the single/double cylinder setups are more suited for your brakes.
 

1. What is the SAE Baja project?

The SAE Baja project is an engineering design competition organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). It challenges students to design, build, and race a single-seat, all-terrain vehicle.

2. What is the goal of the SAE Baja project?

The goal of the SAE Baja project is to provide students with hands-on experience in designing and building a vehicle while also developing their teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving skills.

3. Who can participate in the SAE Baja project?

The SAE Baja project is open to undergraduate and graduate students from universities and colleges around the world. Students from all majors are welcome to participate.

4. How long does the SAE Baja project last?

The SAE Baja project typically lasts for one academic year, with teams starting their design and building process in the fall and competing in regional and national competitions in the spring.

5. What are the criteria for judging in the SAE Baja project?

The SAE Baja project is judged based on various factors such as design, performance, and cost. Judges also evaluate the team's presentation and documentation of their design process. Safety is also a top priority in the judging process.
