The design of braking system of a vehicles is very important in order to minimize the accidents and increase the life span of vehicle, with this motto, in this paper presented the structural analysis, fatigue analysis and thermal analysis of disc brake with slots (DBS) is done by considering various materials of DBS such as carbon alloy, steel and carbon steel. The comparison of those materials is studied in various mechanical and thermal properties such as deformation, strain, stress, factor of safety, number cycles under cyclic loading and heat flux. Simulation studies were done in Ansys 14.5 version. It is observed that the heat flow rate is high in carbon alloy and low in carbon steel material of DBS model. Maximum stress is observed in steel in structural analysis.
