Types of Car Brake System
There are two types of car brake systems and also a combination type brake system is available.
- Drum Brakes include Brake shoes, with linings attached. These are positioned inside the brake drums and the drums rotate with the wheel. When pressure is given onto the brake pedal, the hydraulic fluid within the braking system forces the brake shoes to the outer side until the linings get in touch with the inner side of the drum and force it to stop.
- Disc Brakes work in same way, apart from the brake that is made up of a stationary caliper, and a disc rotating with the wheel. When the pedal is pushed down, the hydraulic pressure forces the brake pads in the caliper to clamp on the disc.
Most of the modern day late models of the cars have disc brakes or combination brake system of front disc and rear drum brakes.
Note: Brakes are heat, water and moisture sensitive, and every time brake pedals are pushed down (or even foot is kept on it), the pads and linings erodes.
