Brakes are a vital, prime, and accident preventive part of any motor vehicle. Brakes help in controlling the vehicle speed when needed by changing the kinetic energy and potential energy into thermal energy. In this work, we have found out temperature distribution, deformation distribution, equivalent stress distribution, and equivalent strain distribution by varying the number of vanes in a ventilated disc brake, considering the coupled thermal and structural field in transient conditions, and compared the results to find out the best possible design. We have considered the disc rotor’s material as grey cast iron and the disc pad’s material as carbon fiber reinforced carbon matrix. It has been found out that with an increase in the number of vanes, there is a reduction in the maximum deformation, maximum stress, and maximum strain and there is a slight increase in the maximum temperature during the whole simulation. A disc rotor with 18 vanes is found to be the best possible design among all 5 designs considered in this paper.
