A brake is a device by means of which artificial frictional resistance is applied to moving machine member, in order to stop the motion of machine. The disc brake is a device for slowing or stopping the rotation of a wheel. Number of times using the brake for vehicle leads to heat generation during braking event, such that disc brake undergoes breakage due to high Temperature. The aim of the paper is to design, ventilated model of a disc brake. Disc brake model is done by CATIA and analysis is done by using ANSYS workbench. The main purpose of this project is to study the thermal and structural analysis of the Materials for the Stainless Steel, Aluminum and Grey Cast Iron. A Comparison is made between three different materials used for ventilated disc brakes and the best material for making disc brake and type of disc brake have been suggested based on the magnitude of von-Mises stresses, temperature distribution and deformation.
