Brake Pad Testing Apparatus was design for help student and instructor in teaching and learning application. The most important objective in this design is to differentiate the pressure effect and braking temperature condition of different pad. Before this, student and instructor only exposed by theory and not by practical which can give more knowledge and easy to understand the principle of braking system. This apparatus also can use to compare with data from calculation theory. This project invo!ves three main parts such as structure, movement mechanism and related sensor. The main concept in this apparatus is thermocouple used to detect the temperature gain while braking process. Thermocouple attached to the pad on the same position for every pad and it will show the same error. Speed Motor Controller used for set the angular velocity of the motor in braking process. Pressure applied at brake pedal detect by Pressure Gauge and Data Logger functions as a connector to show the temperature gain at pads which detect by thermocouple in temperature versus time graph. Infrared Thermometer used for detect temperature at disc brake when brake applied. This apparatus also design base on anthropometric data for average of teenagers in Malaysia which made on a sample of university student. Results show that apparatus can function effectively by defines the different temperature when applied the different pressure and different pad. Pad C show the 88'C for Thermocouple 1 and 79'C for Thermocouple 2 at the 20 psi and infrared thermometer show 113'C for Pad C. Graph fiom calculation show that pad A have 216.48"C at 1000 rpm which have low temperature than pad B, C and D. High coefficient of friction and pressure applied will cause more heat generate than low coefficient of friction and pressure applied.
