Abstract

Friction material properties are important to clutch and brake performance, when applying rubbing force on a rotating friction surfaces heat will be generated and the surface temperature will increase this change in temperature will change the properties of the material, coefficient of friction and wear mechanism will change. The objectives of this thesis are to investigate the friction performance of carbon-carbon clutch discs under different operating condition and the wear rate calculated under different applied pressure and temperature.
