Disc brakes are exposed to large thermal stresses during routine braking and extraordinary thermal stresses during hard braking. In This thesis consists of modeling and analysis of both solid and vented type rotor disc brakes. The main objective of the project is to conduct thermal analysis and static analysis on the both rotors to study the heat and temperature distribution and stresses on disc brake rotor. The results were compared for better rotor and both results provide better understanding on the thermal characteristic of disc brake rotor and assist the automotive industry in developing optimum and effective disc brake rotor. Modeling is done in SOLID WORKS and analysis is done in ANSYS
