Duo-servo brakes with a steep brake factor curve may experience a brake factor increase of 30% over its dry value. The humidity in the brakes may be caused by parking a vehicle in a high-humidity environment, by driving in wet/rainy weather, or in a car wash. Flooding the brakes may cause the opposite, namely a drastic reduction of the brake factor due to a significant drop in lining friction coefficient. FMVSS 105 places some performance requirements on brakes while wet. 8 Effects of Shoe and Drum Stiffness on Brake Factor The derivation of the brake factor in the previous paragraphs was based on a rigid shoe and drum.
2-21. In this particular caliper/pad design, the pad is pulled by the drag force rather than pushed. This design solution has proven to be reliable for both fixed and floating-caliper disc brakes. Other advantages of this pad anchor system include lack of pad vibrations and, hence, low potential 51 Brake Design and Safety for brake noise or brake judder; less weight, because the reaction load is carried by each end of the pad; minimum deflection; and uniform pad temperatures.

Pulled pads can carry heavier specific loadings and are used increasingly in high-performance vehicles. 4 Four-Piston Fixed-Caliper Design A more expensive solution to achieve uniform pad wear is the four-piston caliper design as illustrated in Fig. 2-25. The pads are pushed together by two opposing pistons of different diameters. Small Piston d1 Rotor Pad Fa1 b A Fpad Large Piston d2 p Fa2 Ff Pad Support tp Fd Figure 2-25.
