Disk brake - force and torque

The torque capacity of a disk brake with two pads can be expressed as

T = 2 μ F r                                  (1)

where

T = braking torque (Nm)

μ = coeficient of friction

F = force on each pad (N)

r = mean radius (from center wheel to center pad) (m)

Required pad pressure can be expressed as

p = F / A                            (2)

where

p = pressure (Pa)

A = pad area (m2)
