Analysis of the Thermal-Structure Coupling of the Band Brake
A 3D model of band brake is established with PRO/E software, and its thermal-structure nonlinear coupling is analyzed with finite element software MSC.Marc. Temperature field and stress field distribution of the brake band and the friction linings in braking process are calculated, and the failure mechanism of the connecting bolt is analyzed. All these provide references for optimization design.
