Types of brakes
 Brakes are devices that dissipate kinetic energy of the moving parts of amachine. In mechanical brakes the dissipation is achieved through slidingfriction between a stationary object and a rotating part. Depending upon thedirection of application of braking force, the mechanical brakes are primarily ofthree types
Shoe or block brakes – braking force applied radially
Band brakes – braking force applied tangentially.
Disc brake – braking force applied axially.
