These displacements were calculated requiring RESULOTION 20.0 globally and RESOLUTION 2.0 locally for the front brake parts. The mesh is intentionally coarse to demonstrate that physics already work in this stage. Making this mesh is descibed in User's Guide - DPT Bike.






2. Transient thermal analysis of a disc brake

the loss of a car's kinetic energy defines the thermal load of the disc brake.
initial velocity = 150 km/h, deceleration 10 m/sec**2, mass = 1500 kg
