This article discusses the braking system of a heavy-duty engine for the determination of the friction coefficient. The agricultural vehicle progresses at 40 km / h speed; its weight is 30,000 kg. While braking such a heavy vehicle, a significant amount of heat is released as a result of the disc brake’s friction. A significant part of the resulting heat is removed from the system using oil cooling. The cooling oil lubricates the various components and affects the frictional conditions significantly. This article describes the construction of the braking system. It contains a description of the measurements on the test bench and the evaluation of the results. This study determines the frictional performance and describes the method for determining the friction coefficient of a given construction. The author shows the changes in the friction coefficient depending on the pressure and the temperature, and draws conclusions from the results.
