Characteristics of Friction Materials for Brake Disc in F-16 B32 Fighter

Kam, Moon-Gap,Kim, Won-Il,Kim, Tae-Gyu,


The carbon fiber reinforced carbon composite (CFRC) materials are necessary for the advanced industries that require the thermal resistance. And the development and research for CFRC has been in progress in the field of aerospace and defense industry. CFRC have several advantages and special properties such as excellent anti ablation, outstanding strength retention at very high temperature, high heat capacity and thermal transport, high specific stiffness and strength, and high thermal shock resistance. They have been used as aircraft brake, rocket nozzle, nose cones, jet engine turbine wheels, and high speed craft. Since the technology related to CFRC was prohibited from importing and exporting, we developed our own technology to produce F-16 B32 brake disk made out of CFRC, and then we performed various tests to observe the characteristics of CFRC-based brake disk developed in this study in view of density, strength, friction, specific heat, and heat conductivity.
