In this video we look at the study of tribology and how brake torque is influenced by temperature. The curve for different friction compounds can define its application. A flat curve will work well passenger vehicles for noise and cold friction stops. An upwards curve could define a racing or high-performance application. But, a low-quality friction material might have a downwards slope that could be signs the friction material could fade. Andrew Markel explores the relationship between torque and temperature.
