Abstract

The paper proposes a novel concept for axels dry braking system in off-road vehicles by implementing an oil recovery system in the friction plates chamber. The new system is able to remove the oil in the discs' chamber when they are not engaged and to replenish it when the braking system is activated and the heat generated has to be dissipated. Thus, the energy losses due to the oil splashing will be significantly reduced with remarkable effects on the fuel consumption of the vehicle. Since experimental measurements are very difficult to carry out on a real system, a simplified geometry is designed and an ad-hoc test rig realized. Fast imaging techniques are used to capture the multiphase flow pattern within the friction plates chamber at different rotational speeds of the axel. The experimental results are used to validate a full 3D multi-phase CFD approach. A good agreement between the measurements and the calculations is found. The numerical modeling is therefore employed to predict the flow distribution in the real geometry and under actual operating conditions. A modular approach is adopted for the domain subdivision in order to represent accurately the three dimensional geometrical features, while the volume of fluid approach is used to model the multi-phase flow that characterizes the component. A conjugate heat transfer model is also adopted to predict the heat transferred from the discs to the working fluid and how the fluid is dissipating the heat within the component. By means of the numerical analysis the geometry of the real system is designed in order to improve the performance of the dry braking systems both in terms of energy saving and oil cooling.
