Instructional Objectives:
After reading this lesson the students should learn:
Different types of band brakes
Design of band brakes
Design of disc brakes
Properties of friction materials
1. Band brakes:
The operating principle of this type of brake is the following. A flexible band ofleather or rope or steel with friction lining is wound round a drum. Frictionaltorque is generated when tension is applied to the band. It is known (see anytext book on engineering mechanics) that the tensions in the two ends of theband are unequal because of friction and bear the following relationship:

= angle of wrap.If the band is wound around a drum of radius R, then the braking torque is

 Depending upon the connection of the band to the lever arm, the memberresponsible for application of the tensions, the band brakes are of two types,

Simple band brake:
 In simple band brake one end of the band is attached to the fulcrum of thelever arm (see figures 12.2.1(a) and 1(b) ). The required force to be applied tothe lever is
