Fieldhouse, John D., Bryant, David, Crampton, Andrew, Talbot, Chris J. and Layfield, Jonathan (2008) A study of thermal judder on a laboratory dynamometer. In: SAE Brake Colloquium & Engineering Display, October 2008, San Antonio USA.

This paper considers a study of the thermo-elastic behaviour of a disc brake during heavy braking. The work is concerned with working towards developing a situation (or design) that provides uniform heating of the disc, and equally important, even dissipation of heat from the disc blade.
