Re: 3rd edition of Brake Design & Safety

Marcio, did you ever get your problem solved with deriving the equations?

Re: 3rd edition of Brake Design & Safety

I have a question. I want to predict the Brake Effectiveness (Pedal effort vs Deceleration, Pedal stroke vs Deceleration) of a vehicle equipped with an ABS. Which formula is used?
Is it the same as the formula for Brake effectiveness of a vehicle with a Propositioning Valve?
In addition, I would like to ask you to refer to "3rd Edition of Brake Design & Safety".
