In automotive industry, disc brake is a device that plays a vital role in slowing or stopping the rotation of a wheel. Abrake disc, which is usually made of cast iron or ceramic, is connected to the wheel or the axle. To stop the wheel, friction material in the form of brake pads (mounted in a device called a brake caliper) is forced mechanically, hydraulically, pneumatically or electromagnetically against both side of the disc. Friction causes the disc and the attached wheel to decelerate or stop. Current disc brakehas weaknesses either from the designandthe application, which causes the damages to the brake. This research attempts to investigate a ventilated disc brake with the aim to improve the stopping time, material used for disc caliper and brake pad and the optimization of the brake disc position. The project will employ the method of simulation in ANSYS software, which is a software used to analyze the air flow and dynamic inside the brake rotor vane, as well as thermal stress analysis of ventilated brake disc. The data are gathered from trusted resources such as from internet, books, journal and dissertation thesis to be used in the simulation. The result from the simulation using the detail in Proton Waja's disc brake will be a reference to improvethe design. This research aims mainly to find an optimum braking performance and to reduce the percentage of damage modes reoccurrence. If the braking time and damage modes are reduced using the best material chosen, then this project has succeeded to achieve its goal.
