Firstly I have to say that I´m new to the simscale simulation software and to simulations in general, I did a few easy FEA simulation with Creo from PTC but thats all of my experience.
I´m a member of a Formula Student Team and my task for this season is to find a way to simulate the behaviour of brake discs under the influence of the heat which is created from the friction during the brake process.
My plan is the following:
- First I want to do simple static simulations with the brake disk and the brake pads to get familiar with simscale and to compare different design relating to von mises stress and displacement.
I finished the first simulation sucessfully with a non rotating disk
- The next step is to simulate a rotating disc with non rotating pads to get a step closer to reality.
- The overall aim is to simulate a rotating disk with pads inside a caliper and see the thermal and mechanical behaviour of all parts.
But I recognized that I need your support, cause I didnt find a way to get the disk in rotation.
I´m looking forward to your answers
with kind regards
