    Disc brakes are a less complex but more effective design of braking. • Drum Brakes : It is a type of brake where the friction is caused by a set of shoes or pads that press against rotating drum shaped part called brake drum. Two types of drum brakes are - Single leading edge (1 actuator) and Double Leading Edge

    (Coates Brakes Systems 3). This new braking system used fluid to apply pressure and greatly reduced lock up. Disc Brakes have become the premiere stopping system on cars today. Disc brakes do not trap water as drum brakes tend to do which causes them to slip and fail. Disc brakes also allow more surface area to accept pressure from the brake pads making stopping faster. In addition to disc brakes ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) was introduced on motor vehicles in the United States as a safety feature

    motion that is supplied to the wheels of the vehicle. In a vacuum assisted hydraulic brake system, a constant vacuum is kept maintained in the brake booster using the engine. When the brake pedal is pushed down, a poppet valve opens and air pushes/rushes into the pressure chamber on the driver’s side of the booster. In a vacuum braking system, vacuum is used for the application of brakes. Braking the train is a very complex process, particularly to rail vehicles and is of great importance because of essential

    is ABS? Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) is a combination of vehicle hardware and software that work together to maintain steering control and vehicle stability during hard braking. Initially developed as a special option for topof-the-line models, today’s ABS units are compact, easy to service, inexpensive and widely available. Now every major automotive manufacturer offers some form of ABS vehicle control that provides safe, maximum braking under all weather conditions and road surfaces. "FULL" Fig

    For example regenerative braking changes over a great part of the vitality to electrical vitality, which may be put away for later utilize. Different techniques change over dynamic vitality into potential vitality in such put away structures as pressurized air or pressurized oil. Vortex current brakes use attractive fields to change over dynamic vitality into electric current in the brake circle, balance, or rail, which is changed over into warmth. Still other braking strategies even change active

    DEFINITION: A device for slowing or stopping a vehicle or other moving mechanism by the absorption or transfer of the energy of momentum, usually by means of friction. It basically has a slowing or stopping effect. • EXPLANATION: They are used to convert the kinetic energy of the motion into heat energy by means of friction and stopping the vehicle, other forms of energy can be derived from this effect with slight alterations. For example we have regenerative braking system which is specifically used to convert
