Literature survey, Report TT.0710, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

In this literature survey the required braking torque for certain functions of a transport system is calculated. Next several brake types and brake lifters will be regarded. At last the behaviour of brakes and friction materials on rates of friction/unit pressure, friction/temperature and friction/rubbing speed is described.
