WARRENDALE, Pa., July 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SAE International offers the third
edition of the classic title "Brake Design and Safety." The third edition provides readers with the
basic theoretical fundamentals and analytical tools necessary to design braking systems for
passenger vehicles and trucks. The goal is to help designers develop brakes that comply with safety
standards, minimize consumer complaints, and perform safely and efficiently before and while
electronic brake controls become active.

Electronic system controls have significantly increased the potential of braking systems.
Notwithstanding the advances made in applying brakes by mechanical, hydraulic, or electrical
means, vehicles are slowed and stopped by friction between pad and rotor. Only when the
underlying brake system is properly engineered will automatic controls perform effectively and
vehicles brake safely under all foreseeable operating conditions.

Authored by Rudolf Limpert, "Brake Design and Safety, Third Edition," is written for students,
engineers, forensic experts, and brake technicians, provides readers with theoretical knowledge of
braking physics, and offers numerous illustrations and equations that make the information easy to
understand and apply.

This new edition includes expanded chapters on:

● Thermal analysis of automotive brakes
● Analysis of hydraulic brake systems
● Single vehicle braking dynamics

Individual chapters cover:

● Fundamentals of Braking Performance, Design, and Safety
