Abstract

The invention relates to the field of transport engineering, in particular to ventilated brake discs of vehicles. The system for cooling a brake disc is in the form of non-intersecting radial channels which are formed in the disc body and are separated with partitions. Each radial channel consists of alternating diffuser and confuser sections, and the cross section of the channels is in the form of a circle, ellipse or square, wherein the length of the diffuser section is greater than or equal to the length of the confuser section. Furthermore, swirling of the air flow is provided in the channels of varying cross section. The technical result of such a design of a system for cooling a brake disc is an increase in the efficiency of cooling frictional surfaces of the brake disc by a method of passive intensification of the convective heat exchange, which leads to a reduction in the maximum heating temperatures, to prevention of premature wear and to an increase in the service life of the brake disc.

Description

 Brake disc cooling system

The invention relates to the field of transport engineering, namely to ventilated discs for disc brakes of brake systems of vehicles.

 The prior art ventilated brake discs of disc brakes of brake systems of vehicles having a cooling system in the form of through radially directed inner channels. Ventilated brake discs are used at high speeds and braking speeds of vehicles and provide, thanks to their design, better cooling performance compared to an unventilated brake disc.

 A known system for cooling a brake disc using holes in the brake paths of a hollow brake disc made in concentric circles with access to radial channels (German patent 2219770). The disadvantage of this system is the sluggish current convection of cooling air through the channels and openings of the brake disc, which does not allow for efficient heat dissipation in modern vehicles.

 A known cooling system for a brake disc is a through ventilation ducts uniformly spaced around the circumference from the hub to the rim of the disc, formed by transverse baffles in the form of vanes. In this case, the blades are made curved and equally inclined backward relative to the direction of rotation of the disk, each blade being shorter than the adjacent two long blades through one, which makes it possible to increase the passage area at the entrance to the blade wheel for the passage of cooling air compared to the case when all the blades have the same length (patent for the invention of the Russian Federation jN ° 2212572).

The disadvantage of this cooling system of the ventilated brake disc is the high diffusivity of the interscapular channels, which is due to the mismatch of the areas of the passage sections at the input and output interscapular channels leads to increased hydrodynamic losses, lower cooling air flow, and, consequently, to reduce the cooling efficiency of the disk during braking.

 Closest to the claimed technical solution is a cooling system of a ventilated brake disc for vehicles according to RF patent N ° 2438049, containing two friction rings located at a distance from each other, to form an annular gap with a given gap width interconnected by a plurality of connecting jumpers located in the gap . To increase the efficiency of the cooling system of this brake disc in the region of the annular gap, there are many elements for directing the flow, creating turbulence in the gap in the gap and affecting the air flow in the annular gap and the air flow rate in the region of the annular gap. Friction rings for the formation of a radial protrusion on one of the friction rings, which serves as an element for directing the flow in the area of the air intake channel in separate sections or in separate areas, are made with different inner diameters. Having a smaller inner diameter and thereby forming a radial protrusion, the friction ring is provided and / or made with a similar blade geometry. A number of swirls, made in the form of many convex cones and / or recesses in the form of holes located at a distance from each other in the circumferential direction, is adjacent directly to a similar blade of geometry. Additionally, the surface area of the walls of the annular gap for the formation of the element for directing the flow, at least in certain areas, is made with creating and / or favorable turbulent air flow surface roughness.

 This is a ventilated brake disc cooling system adopted as a prototype.

Presented in the prototype cooling system of a ventilated brake disc refers to passive methods of intensifying heat transfer, which are based on the impact on the flow characteristics by the shape of the heat transfer surface. It is known that the heat flux during convective heat transfer, discharged by ventilation air, is directly proportional to the average heat transfer coefficient, the area of the surface being washed and the average temperature difference between the air and the wall and is estimated by the Newton formula:

Q = a * F * AT (1)

Q is the heat flux;

 a is the average heat transfer coefficient;

 F is the area of the washed surface;

 ΔΤ is the average temperature difference between the air and the wall.

The area of the surface being washed and the average temperature difference are determined by the design and overall dimensions of the brake disc and the braking mode, but the shape of the heat transfer surface significantly affects the value of the average heat transfer coefficient, and, hence, the removed heat flux (with the same values of F and ΔΤ), t .e. in our case, the shape of the ventilation duct.

The essence of the process of passive intensification of convective heat transfer is that when it is implemented in channels with artificial turbulization of the flow, the growth of relative heat transfer is faster than or equal to the growth of hydrodynamic resistance with respect to the corresponding characteristics of a smooth channel (that is, without turbulators) with identical defining geometry of their profiles cross sections of channels and flow regimes of the coolant. In this case, additional energy is supplied to the coolant flow mainly in the zone of a narrow wall layer, where almost the entire gradient of the velocity and temperature field is triggered. The carriers of this additional energy are artificially generated vortex systems, located mainly in the wall layer. Thus, due to artificial turbulization of the flow, the values of the heat transfer coefficient characteristic of the developed turbulent flow can be achieved with the Reynolds criterion values corresponding to the laminar and transitional regimes. However, experience shows that the efficiency of artificial flow turbulization with increasing flow velocity (values of the Reynolds criteria) decreases and, in the region of developed turbulent flow, the growth rate of resistance prevails over the growth rate of heat transfer.

 The disadvantage of the cooling system presented in the prototype is that in the executed channels of the brake disc, the turbulization effect during the flow around jumpers and swirlers (holes) is local in nature, with an increase in the rotational speed, and, hence, the air flow rate in the ventilation system of the cooled brake disc , the hydrodynamic resistance increases faster than the heat transfer coefficient and, therefore, the brake disc has in this case not intensive cooling due to a decrease in the mass flow rate of the cooling air ear.

 The technical task of the claimed cooling system of the ventilated brake disc during braking is the intensification of convective heat transfer between the cooling air flowing through the ventilation ducts and the body of the brake disc.

 The technical result in our case is increased heat dissipation from the surface of the disk.

The specified technical result is achieved by the fact that in the cooling system of the brake disk, made in the form of disjoint radial channels formed in the body of the disk, separated by partitions, the radial channels are made in the form of alternating diffuser-confuser sections. Moreover, the cross-section of the channels is made in the form of a circle, ellipse or quadrangle, and the length of the diffuser section is greater than or equal to the length of the confuser section. In such a cooling system, a periodic change in the pressure and flow rate of the cooling air is provided, which leads to an intensification of heat transfer between the flow of cooling air and the heated end surfaces and fins of the brake disc. The intensification of heat transfer in such a channel (with alternating diffuser-confuser sections) is due to the peculiarities of the hydrodynamics of the flow stream. When flowing in the diffuser, the flow slows down due to the expansion of the channel compared to a smooth channel, while intensive vortex formation and transverse mixing of the air flow (increased turbulence) leads to an intensification of heat transfer between the flow and the wall. The flow in the confuser leads to an acceleration of the flow due to the narrowing of the channel compared to a smooth channel, which usually causes its ordering (decrease in turbulence) and a decrease in heat transfer in the channel. However, when flowing in a channel with alternating diffuser-confuser sections, turbulent perturbations of the flow generated by the diffuser provide a high level of heat transfer in the confuser. This is explained by the fact that in the channel formed by alternating diffuser-confuser sections, an additional pressure drop is formed due to the difference in velocities (according to Bernoulli's law), and additional turbulence of the flow is created due to the interaction of flows caused by a spatial alternating pressure gradient, which, in turn, , leads to intensification of heat transfer. On the whole, the flow system in the diffuser-confuser channel is characterized by high thermal efficiency with moderate hydrodynamic resistance, and the nature of the pressure and velocity distribution is determined by the geometry of the channel’s flow part, its specificity, and is expressed by a certain pulsation curve. Moreover, the increase in hydraulic resistance does not exceed the growth rate of heat transfer intensification in a wide range of Reynolds numbers.

The essence of the claimed cooling system is illustrated by graphic materials on which: - figure 1 and 2 shows the principal device of the brake disc, which implements the proposed cooling system, for the convenience of presentation, the figure is presented in plan with a cutout sector of 90 ° (for clarity, figure 1, the cross-section of the channels has a circle shape, figure 2 - square );

 - in FIG. 3 shows a cross section of the brake disc in the circumferential direction in the center of its thickness.

 - in FIG. 4, 5, preferred sections of cooling channels are shown as fragments of a brake disc.

 The cooling system is as follows. Inside the brake disc 1 with flat end friction surfaces 2 and 3, a set of disjoint radial channels 4 is formed (Fig. 1, 2). The channels are divided by partitions 5, each channel consists of alternating diffuser 6 (expanding) and confusor 7 (tapering) sections (Fig. 3). In the general case, the cross section of the channels can take the form of any geometric figure. But the most effective from the point of view of organizing the movement of air flows will be the shape of the section in the form of an ellipse, (circle) (Fig. 1, 4). Another most preferred variant of the cross section of the channels 2 is a quadrangle (square) (Fig. 2, 5).

 The number and characteristic (equivalent) diameter of the channels, the lengths of the diffuser and confuser sections, the angles of expansion of the diffuser and the narrowing of the confuser are selected from the condition of ensuring optimal heat removal from the surface of the brake disc by the method of passive intensification of convective heat transfer taking into account the geometric dimensions, characteristics and operating modes of the latter.

The principle of operation of the cooling system can be considered by the example of a brake disc, shown in Fig. 1, 4. The brake disk 1 consists of a right 2 and a left 3 end friction surfaces, partitions 5, forming a system of channels 4, each of which, in turn, consists of alternating diffuser 6 and 7 confuser sections. When moving of a car, the brake disk rotates with the wheel, and the cooling air, under the action of centrifugal force, is sucked into the profile channels 2, moving radially from the center to the periphery of the brake disk. When braking a car, the kinetic energy of the movement of the latter is converted by friction into heat, heating the brake disc. When flowing through channels 4, the air heats up, cooling the walls of the channels, and, therefore, the end friction surfaces 2 and 3. Due to the fact that the internal surfaces of the channels 4 are made with alternating diffuser 6 and confuser 7 sections, i.e. have cavities and protrusions, the air in the channels 2 moves with variable speed and pressure depending on the cross-sectional area of the channels, and due to turbulence in the flow, intense heat exchange occurs between the air flow and the heated walls of the channels 2.

 The heat transfer and the hydrodynamic resistance of the channel depend on the ratio of the lengths of the diffuser and the confuser, the sizes of the inlet and outlet sections of the diffuser. The opening angle of the diffuser should not exceed the limit of the continuous separation angle, when the magnitude of which is exceeded, a separated flow arises, increasing the hydrodynamic resistance of the channel and almost not increasing heat transfer. The length of the diffuser section may be equal to or exceed the length of the confuser section. If the length of the confuser section exceeds the length of the diffuser section, the effect of turbulent flow perturbations generated by the diffuser weakens and the increase in hydrodynamic resistance exceeds the level of heat transfer growth, reducing the thermal efficiency of the channel with such a geometry.

As experiments have shown, the intensification of heat transfer in the diffuser-confuser channels compared to smooth channels reaches 1.6 (the ratio of the Nusselt number in diffuser-confuser channels to the Nusselt number in smooth channels divided by the ratio of their hydraulic resistances) ([1], p. 17 ) In a flat channel of the "confuser-diffuser" type, the heat transfer increases by 40-50% compared with a smooth channel with the same hydraulic resistance. ([1], p. 79). The effectiveness of the claimed cooling system is illustrated using a calculation example, to which the invention is, however, not limited.

 Example.

 A special case of the design of the brake disc that implements the proposed cooling system is a system of flat channels (4) of the “confuser-diffuser” type (with alternating diffuser (6) and confuser (7) sections, formed by flat end planes (2, 3) and a profile system partitions, which is the most technologically simple configuration (Fig. 6, 7).

 The lengths of the diffuser and confuser sections are either equal (option c) or 2 times different, and both a large diffuser length (option e) and a large confuser length (option c) are considered. For comparison, the calculation was also performed for a smooth channel of constant cross section (option a).

 The calculation results (for one channel) are presented in table 1.

 Table 1

Figure imgf000010_0001

 The analysis of the results presented in table 1 shows that:

 - The option with an increased confuser (s) leads to an increase in hydraulic resistance (reduction in mass flow) with a slight increase in the heat transfer coefficient (heating of the ventilation air) compared to a channel of constant cross section. Heat fluxes differ by 2%, this value is comparable with the calculation error.

- The option with a reduced confuser (d) does not lead to an increase in hydraulic resistance (mass flow), but significantly the heat transfer coefficient (heating of ventilation air) is increased in comparison with a constant section channel. Heat flow increases by 25%. - An option with equal lengths of the confuser and the diffuser (c) does not lead to an increase in hydraulic resistance (mass flow), but at the same time, the heat transfer coefficient (heating of the ventilation air) is significantly increased compared to the channel of constant cross-section. Heat flow increases by 37%. For the considered geometry of the design option, this is the most optimal option.

 Thus, due to the above-described design of the inventive cooling system of the ventilated brake disc, an increased heat removal from the disc surface is provided by the method of passive intensification of convective heat transfer using a diffuser-confuser channel system, which leads to a decrease in the maximum heating temperature of the brake disc, an increase in operating loads and service life.
