Title:Hot spot heating by composition shoes
Author(s):Wetenkamp, H. R.; Kipp, R. M.
Subject(s):Hot Spot Heating
Composition Shoes
Brake Shoe
Abstract:It is generally understood that uneven heating of the tread of a wheel during braking is possible. A method has been devised to measure the intensity and frequency of hot spots on the wheel tread surface. After a description of the measurement apparatus and technique, results of a study of hot spots during constant speed brake applications with single composition shoes are presented. Possible lowering of the hot spot level by increasing the conformability of the brake shoe is studied by cutting one slot across each pad of a brake shoe. The results show how this method of hot spot study can be used for the analysis and improvement of brake shoes
