The aim of this research is to enhance the heat transfer of ventilated brake disks using modified vanes. The investigated braking scenario is a hold braking deceleration during a downhill drive. A simple model for computing the steady state vane’s temperature is presented. The heat transfer coefficient (HTC) of the brake disk’s ventilation is estimated by means of a verified CFD computation. A novel design for the vanes is proposed using an airfoil profile to improve the air pumping efficiency increasing the flow velocity between vanes. For further improving the ventilating capacity, a secondary airfoil vane is introduced to the primary airfoil vane design. The computed results estimate 17% to 29% improvement in HTC number for new vane design at different disk’s angular velocities.
