Draft Comprehensive Lining Evaluation--Vehicle
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Published May 28, 2003 by SAE International in United States
There is currently no requirement in place for aftermarket brake lining performance. NHTSA has indicated that the automotive aftermarket should take a proactive approach to come up with a standard test definition for lining evaluation. Many aftermarket manufacturers use dynamometer testing to evaluate lining performance, but there is currently not a common recognized method for on-vehicle lining screening. This procedure was created to provide a quick, on-vehicle test method for lining performance evaluation. This procedure is intended for use in passenger cars; multi purpose vehicles and light trucks with a gross vehicle weight less than 4535 kg(10 000 lb). Purpose This Recommended Practice is intended to provide the automotive aftermarket brake lining manufacturer with an on-vehicle test procedure for comparison of brake lining performance with Original Equipment or a competitor's performance. Care should be taken to maintain consistency between tests that are being compared. The data provided includes stopping distance performance in three lining conditions: green, burnished and faded. Also, driver pedal feel is quantified so that it can be objectively compared in the three principal lining conditions.

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
