    Road safety - Hydraulic Brakes Road safety - Hydraulic Brakes Presentation Transcript

    • Hydraulic Principles Fluids cannot be compressed Fluids can transmit Movement  Master cylinder transmits fluid to wheel cylinder. Fluids can transmit and increase force
    • Hydraulic pressure is distributed equally in all directions.Same line pressure to all wheels

    • •Your foot pushes on the brake pedal.•The break pedal pushes a piston (blue) into a master cylinder filled with hydraulic brakefluid (red).•The brake fluid squirts down a long, thin pipe until it reaches the slave cylinder at thewheel.•When the fluid enters the cylinder, it pushes the piston in the wider cylinder (blue) withan increased force.•The piston pushes the brakepad (green) toward the brakedisc (grey).•When the brake pad touchesthe brake disc, frictionbetween the two generatesheat. friction slows down the•Theouter wheel and tyre,stopping the car.
