A simple experimental model for a fundamental investigation of creep groan generating mechanism is introduced. It is a calliper slider model that is developed based on the operating principle of a real brake system and has the ability to generate creep groan quantitatively comparable to those recorded on the real brake system. The advantage of the model is that it is possible to take into account many parameters, such as surface roughness of mating materials, properties of mating materials and structure's stiffness, so that their effects for creep groan phenomenon can be analysed. The usefulness and potential of the model are demonstrated by its ability to generate creep groan using a real brake lining material that is well known to the brake industry as a material that easily produces creep groan in real applications. Parametric analysis is conducted, and the effects of several sensitive parameters to stick-slip frequency characteristic of creep groan are highlighted. Copy; 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
