The high-load tribological contacts present in automotive braking systems give rise to the formation of hard, elevated contact structures known as patches. These patches carry a substantial portion of the normal force between the brake pad and the disc; therefore, their dynamics are largely responsible for the system’s macroscopic tribological behavior. The Abstract Cellular Automaton efficiently simulates the tribological interface between an entire pad and the disc by focusing on the effects of the patches, while limiting the computational resources allocated to the surrounding material. Global phenomena can thus be simulated without loss of detailed mesoscopic information. View the paper here.
