Introduction Everybody knows that when you press your foot on the brake pedal the vehicle is supposed to stop. But how does the pressure from your foot get to the wheels with enough force to stop a heavy vehicle? In the following sections, we will study the systems and components required to allow brakes to work effectively. Course Objectives Upon completion of this course, technicians should understand and be able to apply their knowledge of: • • • • • • • • • • • • Brake functions and components Split hydraulic systems Master cylinder operations Balance control systems Power brake booster systems Disc brake operation Micrometer reading Drum brake operation Brake fluids Brake bleeding operations Brake lines and hoses Basic diagnosis Using the Job Sheets As you proceed through the online module, on some pages you will find links that will open a window with a printable procedure or job sheet containing hands-on lab activities based on the NATEF standards related to the content you are studying. When you come upon a procedure or job sheet link, click on it and print the job sheet for completion in the shop. See your instructor for guidance in completing the job sheets. Some jobs sheets will require supplemental materials such as a vehicle service manual, equipment manual, or other references. Brake System Functions Automotive brakes are designed to slow and stop a vehicle by transforming kinetic (motion) energy into heat energy. As the brake linings contact the drums/rotors they create friction which produces the heat energy. The intensity of the heat is proportional to the vehicle speed, the weight of the vehicle, and the quickness of the stop. Faster speeds, heavier vehicles, and quicker stops equal more heat. Automotive brake systems can be broken down into several different sub-systems (fig. 1): • Apply system • Boost system • Hydraulic system • Wheel brakes • Balance control system • Warning system (fig. 1) Base Brake Systems .

In the context of today’s changing fiscal landscape on both the state and federal level, the Metro North REB is entering a stage of development that is guided by new opportunities as well as challenges. As it moves forward, the REB must identify creative new approaches, consider diverse sources of funding, and streamline existing systems to optimize efficiency. In addition, undertaking a renewed philosophy of continuous improvement and innovation in program implementation will be crucial to adjusting approaches in workforce development to align with the ever-changing economy. Historically, the education and workforce development systems have been only sporadically, marginally, or indirectly connected to business needs. Although some components of the workforce development system (notably community-based training and employment programs), have a long history of aligning their training with strong employer partnerships, the K-12 and college education systems have been grounded in a philosophy of preparing people for life, by providing a broad, general education, and only targeting training to specific occupations later in the post-secondary experience. In addition, education and workforce development have struggled to keep up with changing technologies and trends in industry, often lacking critical information about where career opportunities exist and what skills and abilities are necessary to take advantage of those options. As a result, education and training are often disconnected from real-time employer needs, and as a result, unemployed youth and adults often lack the necessary skills to enter those jobs that do exist, creating a growing class of disconnected or never connected workers.
course of the investigation. On December 1, 2013, about 0719 eastern standard time, southbound Metro-North Railroad (Metro-North) passenger train number 8808 derailed at milepost 11.35 on track number 2 of the Metro-North Hudson Line in The Bronx, New York. Train movements on this line are governed by a traffic control system. The train originated in Poughkeepsie, New York with a destination of Grand Central Station in New York City. It consisted of seven passenger cars and one locomotive at the rear pushing the train. As a result of the derailment, 4 passengers died and 59 persons were transported to local hospitals for injuries. Metro-North estimated there were about 115 passengers on the train at the time of the derailment. Damage was estimated by Metro-North to be in excess of $9 million. The weather at the time of the accident was reported as 39° F with cloudy skies. Figure: Aerial view of accident scene National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators have completed the on-scene work in The Bronx. The investigation will continue at the NTSB headquarters in Washington, D.C. Preliminary results of the investigation include: The derailment occurred in a 6 degree left hand curve where speed was limited to 30 mph. Estimated train speed at the time of the derailment was at 82 mph. Detailed inspection and testing of the signal system, train brakes, and other mechanical equipment did not identify any anomalies. An inspection of the track in the derailment area did not identify any pre-accident anomalies. All cars on the train and the locomotive derailed. Between December 1 and 11, 2013, investigators completed interviews of train crews and first responders. Interview transcripts will be included in the public docket upon release. Locomotive event recorders were sent to the NTSB laboratory in Washington, D.C. for further analysis. The parties to the investigation include the Federal Railroad Administration, Metro-North Railroad, New York Public Transportation Safety Board, Teamsters Local 808, New York Police Department, New York Fire Department, and Bombardier Transportation. The Association of Commuter Rail Employees (ACRE) was initially designated as a party. However, because one of ACRE’s senior officials made unauthorized comments on the investigation to the media, ACRE was removed as a party on December 3, 2013.
