2-16) and (2-17) with the brake factor BF1 of the primary shoe given by Eq. (2-14) and the brake factor BF2 of the secondary shoe given by Eq. (2-12); the minus sign is used in the denominator. Example 2-1: Duo-Servo Drum Brake Figure 2-12. Duo-servo brake with pivot of secondary shoe. 2 rad α1 = 24 deg α2 = 150 deg The total brake factor BF may be computed by Eqs. (2-12), (2-14), and (2-16) with the brake factor BF1 of the primary shoe given by Eq. (2-14) and the brake factor BF2 of the secondary shoe given by Eq.

Four-wheel ABS, optional 6. Rear ABS-only, optional 7. ABS optional, wheel location unknown 8. (not used) 9. Unknown Only codes 1 and 2 need to be considered. 9% ABS-Voyagers involved in all accidents on wet roads; however, none involved a stopped vehicle ahead. Readers are cautioned that without a proper accident reconstruction NASS data may be misleading. The most difficult issues in the Voyager case were related to the driver’s pedal force application, because no front brakes locked in the accident (the driver was able to steer his vehicle away from stopped traffic on a wet road) and, if the driver had applied the brakes, would ABS have made a difference in view of the reduced friction (wet road) and short distance in which to stop or lower the impact speed to mitigate injuries?

Effectiveness and efficiency. Left-to-right braking imbalance. Wear, corrosion, water, road debris interactions, off-road factors. Warning light and/or audible when inadvertent apply. Diagonal versus front-to-rear split. OEM versus after market practices. Proven product, shelf item – little or no research required. For many of the individual influence factors listed, subsections must be considered. For example, when designing a pad-apply disc parking brake, factors relating to the apply mechanism such as screw, cam, lever or electric system, automatic adjustment, corrosion, deformation when a large service brake pedal force is applied while applying the parking brake, etc.
