This little gem fishes like a premium bass reel, with thumb bar freespool, but it's bluewater-capable, with no levelwind-and with a carbon drag system offering 28 pounds of braking force.
To prevent wheel lockup and maintain steering control, the Anti-Lock Braking System pumps the brakes faster than drivers possibly can, while the Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assist system enable a quicker stop by applying maximum braking force and detecting added weight to send extra force to the rear brakes.
Dellner's new SKD 140 brake delivers braking force of up to 258 kN through two brake housings, each containing a powerful hydraulic piston and the SKD 4x140 brake combines two brake assemblies containing a total of four powerful hydraulic pistons to deliver braking force of up to 516 kN, making it Dellner's most powerful brake yet.
Fryba [1] introduced a fundamental study of beam due to mass roll on the train rails considering the braking force effect and also studied the quasi-static distribution of braking.
Kishan and Trail-Nash [5] studied the dynamic response of highway bridges due to vehicle loading considering braking force, and the resulting impact factors (IMs) may be larger than those adopted in the current design code.
Key statement: The present invention has its object to provide a high performance studless tire, which has both good braking force and high handling stability on ice or snow, at higher productivity and at a lower price for customers.
It works in conjunction with the braking hardware in the car, and controls the amount of braking force sent to the wheel with the help of electronic sensors located in the wheels.
It has been proved that for a certain ratio of wheel rotation and vehicle speed, braking force is maximum.
