This paper presents an approach to simulating wear on both contact surfaces at the pad-to-rotor interface in discbrakes using general purpose finite element software. Itrepresents a first step toward a method of simulating the brake pressure needed to effectively clean the rotor ofunwanted oxide layers. Two simulation cases are presented. The first addresses running-in wear underconstant load and corresponds to repeated brakeapplications at the same constant brake load. Thesecond studies what will happen if a lower load is applied after the contact surfaces have been run-in at ahigher load level. This lower load is applied to wear off an oxide layer after a sequence of repeated stop braking at higher load levels.
