Abstract : The paper discusses some of the research studies pertaining to self-induced brake vibration (squeal), which is part of a study to eliminate landing gear system problems. Experimental tests were designed to provide data on brake friction lining characteristics which result in brake squeal. The results of these tests are discussed qualitatively. Theoretical studies were aimed at understanding the mechanism of brake squeal and the role various brake design parameters play in self-induced vibrations. An analog computer simulation was also used to determine the influence of negative slope and other variables. (Author)
