This research focused on both vented and solid disc brakes constructed from functionally graded material that were modeled and studied. The main goal of this study is to perform static and modal tests on both rotors in order for a deeper understanding of total deformation, stress and load distribution on the disc brake’s rotor. The results were then compared to identify the superior rotor as well as both results offer an improved understanding of the properties of deformation in disc brake rotors. In turn, they are helping the automotive industry in determining the most efficient and effective disc brake rotors. The process of modeling is carried out utilizing the software CATIA, while the subsequent analysis is performed using ANSYS. In this work examines the mechanical properties of various materials utilized in disc brakes, including copper alloy, ceramic matrix, and titanium alloy, under varying mechanical loads i.e., at input pressure 1500 Pa and 2000 Pa. The ceramic matrix is regarded as functional graded materials in this context.
