Brake system performance significantly affects safety, handling and vehicle dynamics. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to discuss brake system characteristics and performance and component design parameters. We perform a detailed study of a specific brake system designed for Mercedes-AMG SLC-43, considering component design parameters and operational points, and finally conduct the vehicle braking system layout design. To this end, brake force and torque calculations and power dissipation modelling is performed. Then, ventilated brake discs are designed for the front and rear brakes. A main goal of the present article is to apply digital logic method to the material selection procedure among the candidate material proposed for brake components and rank the materials according to performance indices. The performance indices of five candidate materials were calculated and compared to select the best option for application in the brake disc. Finally, the calculations of the brake pedal, booster, cylinder, hoses and tubes are obtained.
