Microelectronics and mechatronics have resulted in a significant increase in the technical potential and functionality of brake systems. In a single source, this book provides comprehensive coverage of the current state of the art, as well as the future, of brakes and braking systems.

Translated and completely updated from the landmark German-language work Bremsenhandbuch, Brake Technology Handbook covers brake system fundamentals, requirements, design, construction, components, and subsystem functions for vehicles of all types (including passenger cars, commercial vehicles, off-road vehicles, motorcycles, racing vehicles and even aircraft).
