The most important component in an automobile vehicle is a brake system. Now a days, due to increasing demands of the customers towards effective braking conditions and stability of the vehicle with respect to the speed has a designer challenge. In this work, an alternative material has been proposed for the brake pad and rotor to achieve effective braking conditions and stability of the vehicle by increasing coefficient of friction and good wear resistance. Two different materials, S2 Glass Fibre and Carbon fibre are selected as the pad materials and Aluminium alloy and Gray Cast iron is selected for the rotor material. Static and thermal analysis was performed on solid disc and ventilated discs for different pad materials and rotor materials using ANSYS 15. Different pad profiles with pure, single slot and double slot has been studied by varying material properties of pad . Based on the stresses and deformations obtained for different configurations, carbon fibre pure pad material is selected as the optimum material for the design as it is having high wear resistance, good thermal conductivity and good anti fade resistance. Based on the heat dissipation capacity of the brake system, Aluminium alloy is chosen as the best optimum material to dissipate heat to the surroundings.
