Automotive braking system, drum and disc brake system introduction
Car, in addition to running fast, but also need to stop. In order to be able to slow down the vehicle, every car has a braking system. Brakes are the core of a car's braking system and can be divided into drum and disc types, both of which convert friction into heat to achieve stopping. Next, we will briefly explain how the two types of brakes operate and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Introduction to Drum Brakes
In drum brakes, the inner side of the drum is connected to the wheel hub. When the car is in motion, as the wheel rotates, there is a pair of brake shoes on the inner side of the drum with friction linings attached to it, and when the brake is applied, with the help of hydraulic pressure, the brake shoes compress the drum to achieve braking.
