Safety side in engineering has been thought of as variety one priority in development of latest vehicle. Each single system has been studied and developed so as to satisfy safety demand. Instead of having bags, sensible suspension systems, sensible handling and safe cornering, there’s one of most crucial system within the vehicle that is brake systems. Without brake within the vehicle can place a traveller in unsafe position. Therefore, it’s a requirement for all vehicles to own correct brake. Due to vital system within the vehicle, several of researchers have conducted a study on brake and its entire part. In this project, the author has conducted a study on aerated and traditional disk brake of traditional traveller vehicle with full load of capability. The brake must be sufficiently designed in order to dissipate the heat generated from the braking process adequately for safe braking system performance. The aim of our project is to design and investigate the braking performance of the low cost passenger car with various materials like stainless steel, cast iron and aluminium alloy. The disc brake structure is changed with cross-drilled holes on the rotor of the disc for more heat dissipation using CATIA V5 R21 and performance study in term of its Structural property was determined using ANSYS finite element analysis software.
