WARRENDALE, Pa. -- SAE International published the third edition of this classic title that 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 -- Design and Analysis of Friction Brakes -- Thermal Analysis of Automotive Brakes -- Analysis of Mechanical Brake Systems -- Analysis of Hydraulic Brake Systems -- Analysis of Air Brake Systems -- Single Vehicle Braking Dynamics -- Braking Dynamics of Combination Vehicles -- Automatic Brake Control -- Analysis of Brake Failure

Dr. Rudolf Limpert is retiring from a long career as consulting engineer on motor vehicle and traffic safety. He continues to publish and teach motor vehicle accident reconstruction and design of braking systems. The author of many publications and four other books related to automotive safety, Dr. Limpert received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan, his M.S. and B.E.S. from Brigham Young University, and his B.S. from the Engineering School of Wolfenbuettel.
