# CFD modeling and computation of convective heat coefficient transfer of automotive disc brake rotors

### Resumen (en_US)

Braking system is one of the important control systems of an automotive. For many years, the disc brakes have been used in automobiles for safe retardation of the vehicles. During braking enormous amount of heat will be generated and for effective braking sufficient heat dissipation is essential. The thermal performance of disc brake depends upon the characteristics of the airflow around the brake rotor and hence the aerodynamics is an important in the region of brake components. A CFD analysis is carried out on the braking system as a case study to make out the behaviour of airflow distribution around the disc brake components using ANSYS CFX software. We are interested in the determination of the heat transfer coefficient (HTC) on each surface of a ventilated disc rotor varying with time in a transient state using CFD analysis, and then imported the surface film condition data into a corresponding FEM model for disc temperature analysis.

### Resumen (es_ES)

Braking system is one of the basic organs to control a car. For many years, the disc brakes have been used in automobiles for safe retardation of the vehicles. During braking, enormous amount of heat will be generated, and for effective braking, sufficient heat dissipation is essential. The specific air flow surrounding the brake rotor depends on the thermal performance of the disc brake and hence, the aerodynamics is an important in the region of brake components. A CFD analysis is carried out on the braking system as the study of this case, to make out the behaviour of air flow distribution around the disc brake components using ANSYS CFX software. The main object of this work is to calculate the heat transfer coefficient (h) of the full and ventilated brake discs as a function of time using the CDF analysis which will be used later in the transient thermal analysis of the disc in ANSYS Workbench 11.0.
