Automotive brake systems are now generally divided into two types. One is hydraulic braking; the other is pneumatic braking. The hydraulic brake is transmitted by the brake master cylinder with the brake fluid as the transmission medium through the brake pipe to each brake cylinder to achieve the brake braking effect; and the pneumatic brake is based on the high pressure gas. The medium is moved and sent to each brake cylinder through the pipeline to achieve the braking effect.
The function of the brake system is to force the running car to decelerate or even stop according to the driver's request; to stabilize the parked car in various road conditions (including on the ramp); The speed remains stable.
Expanding the data: The braking effect on the car can only be the external force acting on the car and the direction opposite to the direction of the car. The magnitude of these external forces is random and uncontrollable. Therefore, the car must be equipped with a series of special The device is implemented to achieve the above functions. In order to ensure the safe driving of the car and increase the average running speed of the car to improve the transportation productivity, a special brake mechanism is provided in various automobiles. Such a series of specialized devices is called a brake system.
