Abstract

In this paper, the simplified mechanical model of a brake system of heavy commercial vehicles is compiled. With the help of an appropriate new mechanical construction of the brake, the self-locking phenomenon is able to provide a kind of ideal "self-braking". This may need relatively small energy consumption at the actuators, but the control of the self-locking brake is a very sensitive problem since the mechanical system is tuned into the neighbourhood of one of its unstable states. This explains why a precise mechanical modelling of the advanced electro-mechanical brake systems is necessary. Numerical and analytical results are presented to demonstrate the behaviour of the mechanical model.
