transient thermal analysis, pin-on-disc test rig, temperature field, frictional heat, dry contact


The high thermal stresses generated at the interface between the contacting surfaces due to the sliding between parts of sliding system such as friction clutches and brakes. In this work, pin-on-disc test rig was built to find the temperature field during the sliding operation using experimental and numerical approaches. In the experimental approach, infrared camera was used to find the temperature distribution, while in the numerical approach a finite element technique has been used. Analysis has been completed using three-dimensional model to simulate a pin-on-disc system. The numerical results have shown a good agreement compared with the experimental results.
