LOZADA, Alexy Fabian Vinueza  and  SUQUILLO, Nelson Ramiro Gutiérrez. Analysis by the finite element method of the behavior of the ABS brake pads with materials based on steel and zinc discretizing the continuous element using CAE software. Enfoque UTE [online]. 2018, vol.9, n.1, pp.188-203. ISSN 1390-6542.

In this paper, the study of the behavior of the brake pads of an ABS system was carried out using the finite element analysis method, where one of the most critical actions is to perform quality meshing, so that this allows improving the convergence of results by optimizing the computational load, which enables the problem to be solved in less time. The use of software tools to carry out this type of study has the advantage that in the post-processing the type of parameters that can be studied can be chosen, in this case, mechanical and thermal variables that allowed to characterize the behavior of the materials were analyzed. The study was carried out for two materials: Trimat MN1081 which is composed of steel and non-ferrous filaments and Trimat GZC composed of zinc fibers, in this way important characteristics of these materials were obtained, such as stress, deformation, penetration, the flow heat and energy. Based on the method developed and the results obtained, a study will be conducted with alternative materials, which will allow determining the feasibility of using these materials in search of optimal results in both mechanical characteristics and costs.
