Functionality of the EBD (Electronic Brake-Force Distribution)

Functionality of the EBD (Electronic Brake-Force Distribution)

Rearranging this equation is possible to find Master Cylinder Pressure (P(m)) : The modified Braking distribution ratio is: The following plot shows the Braking Distribution Ratio against the Master Cylinder Pressure. The EBD effect is shown by the double red line. The EDB [Read More]

Braking distribution ratio

Braking distribution ratio

The braking ratio is defined as: And can be calculated using equation: Where Tf is the braking force front and  Tr  is the braking force rear. More information on calculating these can be found here. [Read More]

Relationship between the adhesion utilisation and the rate of braking

Relationship between the adhesion utilisation and the rate of braking

The adhesion utilizations, f, can be calculated using the equations:  The loads applied (static load +/- transfer load) on the front (N1) and rear (N2) axles can be calculated using the following equations: Where: P = Weight of car Z = Rate of braking h = Height of CG. [Read More]

Rate of braking for different brake set up conditions

Rate of braking for different brake set up conditions

The 3 different conditions of which the rate of braking is determined under are: a)        Front brakes only b)        Rear brakes only c)         All brakes   For the following load case : Front axle weight = 9205N Rear axle weight. = 7575N   The rate [Read More]

Audi vehicle testing

Audi vehicle testing

What does it take for a car to become an Audi? It takes determination that knows no limits. It takes 2.5 million test km a year. Searing heat. Torrential rain. 300 km per hour wind. Salt. 100% humidity. An aging process that ads 12 years in just 19 weeks. All Audi models [Read More]
