Brakes are used to slow or stop motion by creating friction which is literally resistance to relative motion between two surfaces that are in contact. When designing a braking system it is important to look at the materials that are being used and the amount of pressure that is applied to these materials, in order for an effective braking system. In this course, you will learn about the mechanisms used to slow or stop any form of motion by applying force.
