Brakes: The Rundown of How Brakes Work
We all know that pushing down on the brake pedal brings a car to a stop. What we don’t know, however, are all the processes behind this simple movement that make it happen.
When you press down on your brake pedal, a few processes take place, first:
1. Your car transfers the force from your foot (plus a little extra) to the brakes through brake fluid.
2. The car then multiplies the force of your foot. It does this by mechanical advantage (leverage) and hydraulic force multiplication.
3. The brakes transmit the force to the tyres using friction.
4. The tyres, in turn, transmit that force to the road using friction.
Within the brake system, the disk brakes are the main part of the system that does the work and slows the car to a stop. Most modern cars have disc brakes on the front wheels and brake drums on the back wheels, although some have disc brakes on all four wheels.
The main parts of a disc brake are:
• The brake pads
• The brake calliper
• The brake rotor
The disc brake design used for cars is like the brakes on bikes. In a disc brake in your car, the brake pads squeeze the rotor instead of the wheel, and the force is hydraulic instead of being transmitted through a cable. This friction between the pads and the disc is the force that slows the disc (and wheels) down.
Drum brakes are a little more complex than disc brakes and are harder to service, but they are less expensive to manufacture—and are equally efficient at bringing your car to a stop.
