One of the major discomforts while driving any medium to heavy commercial vehicle is brake judder. Brake judder can be defined as vibrations felt on steering wheel or brake pedal or cabin floor, when brakes are applied at certain speeds and pressures. The frequencies of this judder lie as high as 100 Hz to as low as 20 Hz. The brake judder is caused by a number of factors, which makes providing a universal solution difficult. Some of the causes are related to part fitment, part quality, material selection, manufacturing process, Design consideration, environmental factors, etc.
This paper gives us a brief idea about resolution of judder problem in intermediate commercial vehicle by series of trials and this methodology can be applied in heavy commercial vehicles also. This paper gives reader an insight about step by step root cause analysis of brake judder on actual vehicle and an approach in resolving the judder problem.
