The disc brake or disk brake is a device for slowing or stopping the rotation of a wheel. A brake disc usually made of cast iron or ceramic composites is connected to the wheel and the axle.
To stop the wheel, friction material in the form of brake pads is forced mechanically, hydraulically, pneumatically or electromagnetically against both sides of the disc. Friction causes the disc and attached wheel to slow or stop. But in our project hydraulic energy is used as the source of power, due to high applied force and torque
Here we are using the wheel disc with the inner arrangement of master cylinder and brake pad as well as return spring arrangement. The air from the compressor is used to operate the master cylinder at the certain pressure, here the solenoid valve is used to operate the master cylinder and it is controlled by the control unit.
when ever the brake apply the control unit will activate the solenoid valve to supply the sir from the compressor and it passed through the master cylinder then it will extern the piston rod which is inside of the master cylinder after releasing the control unit activate the solenoid valve to stop the supply from the compressor, then the master cylinder will released the piston rod to the original position by the above process we re doing the hydraulic disc braking system
