Numerical Analysis and Experimental Study on Temperature Field of Brake Disc during the Air-Cooling Process
Numerical study established by using ANSYS 12.0 has been performed by considering convective and radiative heat transfer to predict the transient thermal behavior of a brake disc during air-cooling process of heat treatment. Though the model based on the numerical study, temperature distribution maps at different time delays and variation in the temperature at different parts of the brake disc are given. Additionally, experimental results demonstrate the validity of the simulation analysis through comparing with the results obtained from the transient analysis. It is shown that the air-cooling numerical model of brake disc is verified and has the rather accurately temperature prediction ability.
