Practical Activities for Braking Systems


Engineering Studies – P3 Braking Systems – Practical Activities

This section contains classroom practical challenges that enhance the learning of engineering concepts. The challenges link to Engineering Studies outcome.

  • Stress and Strain
  • Work and Power
  • Hydraulics
  • Friction
  • Ferrous alloys
  • Testing – Hardness and Tensile

Suggested short practical activities include:

  • Hydraulic Claw

Experiment with various input and output syringe sizes and forces developed with moments.

  • Friction

Coefficient of friction and the angle of friction

Experiment with objects at the point of sliding on an inclined plane. Determine coefficient and angle of friction.
