The type of material used for a brake pad is crucial for its performance. The response observed in the form of wear could be traced back to the parameters during braking operation like speed, coefficient of friction, time of contact, etc. This work began with the identification of the typical value or levels for the parameters and has now concluded with the recommended levels while optimizing the performance in the context of wear. Taguchi methods have been deployed for statistical treatment upon ascertaining the normality of the data recorded during experimentation. L9 orthogonal array was chosen upon deciding the feasibility of recording the experimentation. For validation of the optimized values determined during the statistical treatment, the experiment was repeated with the proposed values. A good concurrence was found between the analytical treatment and the experimental results.
