This paper will present the rate of heat dissipation in the disc brake with different drilled holes. Analysis, related calculations and simulations using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software will be conducted for different shape of drilled holes on disc brake rotor of motor vehicle. After the comparison, we will deliver the design of grooved shape that could have the highest rate of heat dissipation and strength to withstand the thermal stresses during the braking process. The studies and analyses are more likely to concern on the distribution of heat and temperature and also the thermal stresses on the surface of the disc brake rotor. We will simulate a series of thermal analysis using the thermal simulation from the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software to predict the final results and scenario based on different setting on the simulation. Then, another series of structural analyses using static analysis from the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) will be conducted to determine the stress distribution on the disc brake rotor. After the analyses and studies for different disc brake are conducted, comparison will be done to justify which design is the best among all the different disc brake. To make the final results to be more solid, the solid disc brake will be compared with the journal or related calculations for a better justification before we modify it by adding drilled holes. Eventually, this result would deliver a more accurate and consistent data to help improve the understanding of thermal and the structural characteristic for different disc brake rotor with different settings. We believe this will benefit the automotive industry for the future development of disc brake rotor with higher efficiency and optimum condition.
