Introduction to Brake Systems – Study Guide

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 .

Shoe Types Explained
by solmon 0 Comments favorite 0 Viewed Download 0 Times

Cushioned Shoes You should wear cushioned shoes if you are a runner who needs maximum midsole cushioning and minimum medial (arch-side) support. These shoes are best suited for biomechanically efficient runners (you don't overpronate), and midfoot or forefoot strikers. Runners who do best in cushioned shoes often have moderate to high arches. Motion Control Shoes You should wear motion-control shoes if you are a runner who overpronates moderately to severely. Motion-control shoes will give you maximum rearfoot control and extra support on the medial (arch) side of the foot. Motion-control shoes are also best suited for big or heavy runners who need plenty of support and durability. These runners often have low arches (flat feet). Performance Training Shoes You should wear performance-training shoes if you are a runner who wants a light, well-balanced shoe suitable for racing, speedwork, or daily training. These shoes are best-suited for fast, efficient runners who want to train in them. Moderate overpronators can also train and race in some of these shoes. Racing Shoes You should wear racing shoes if you have a biomechanically efficient stride, don't have any current injuries, and want an exceptionally fast, lightweight shoe for races. Many runners use performance training shoes or their regular training shoes for races. Stability Shoes You should wear stability shoes if you are a runner who needs medial (arch-side) support and good midsole cushioning. These shoes are best suited for runners who are mild to moderate overpronators, and/or need added support and durability. Trail Shoes...

“A New Jersey Favorite Hangs his Racing Shoes” Joey P. Lands ...

“I want to fly like an eagle… To the sea…Fly like an eagle…Let my spirit carry me…I want to fly like an eagle… Till I'm free… Oh, Lord, through the revolution..”.(Steve Miller and Steve Miller Band--Album Fly Like an Eagle. January 1977.) He was free on the track for nine years. Nine years, unheard of for most racehorses. Free to run and win; do what he was born to do, because he knew he could do it. Just ask those who spent any time with this Thoroughbred. Joey P, a Jersey bred, flew with spirit through the demanding industry of horse racing. Starting Gate: Dreamlike Success. He stands a stately tall 17 +hands. He is a russet dark bay gelding, with jet black mane and forelock, engrossing deep black eyes, who commands attention and why not? He has been receiving it since he set foot on shavings and grass. His tale began March 22, 2002 with two families; his genetic family, Close Up (Sire), and Lucky Lipco (Dam), and his racing family; An extensive list of individuals; John Petrini (breeder/owner), Frank Costa and later Ben Perkins Jr./Chris Gardiner (trainers), groomer, and Joe Bravo, Chuck Lopez, Pablo Fragoso, (predominant jockeys) . Joey P. stayed grounded with most of this group for nearly 10 years; atypical in horse racing circles. His first real brush with humans was Petrini who named him after his eighth grandson. Petrini pauses, “So much has been written. Let me see, a story. Yes, I remember this one time in Vineland, New Jersey, there was this mare he liked...

Running Shoe Basics - Big River Running

Neutral (Cushioned) shoes...are most appropriate for neutral runners of all shapes and sizes who either do not pronate or roll slightly to the outside when they strike the ground (supinate) and have mid to high arches. Neutral shoes provide the most flexibility of any shoe. Stability shoes...are typically well-suited to the runner who has normal to mild overpronation and medium-to-low arches. They often have a medial post or multi-density midsole to provide a degree of pronation (see illustration below) control which can range from mild to heavy control. Motion control shoes...are highly rigid designed to limit severe over-pronation. They offer maximmum stability and medial support. Typically, they have an inner post and a multi-density or polyurethane midsole. They tend to be the heaviest, most durable, and most expensive running shoes. Motion-control shoes are geared toward the runner who tends to severely over-pronate and who has flat arches. Racing shoes...consist of spikes and flats used in cross country and track. Flats are lightweight shoes used for racing, usually on roads. They consist of minimal amounts of cushioning. Spikes are also used for racing, typically on grass or a track. Spikes usually have metal or ceramic “spikes” that screw into the bottom of the shoe to provide traction. Finding the right fit for spikes is based more on foot shape and feel rather than pronation.

Grafix® Demonstrates Overwhelming Efficacy in Landmark Stem ...

Grafix® Demonstrates Overwhelming Efficacy in Landmark Stem Cell Study for the Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers Grafix closes three times as many wounds as standard of care - the largest relative improvement ever reported in a multi-center, randomized, controlled clinical trial for DFU COLUMBIA, Md. - August 13,2013 - Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIR), reported today that its multicenter, randomized, controlled clinical trial comparing the safety and effectiveness of Grafix® to standard of care in patients with chronic diabetic foot ulcers had met the pre-specified stopping rules for overwhelming efficacy as determined by the data monitoring committee during a planned interim analysis. For the primary endpoint, 62% of patients receiving Grafix had complete wound closure compared to only 21% (p<0.0001) of patients who received conventional treatment for their wounds - a relative improvement of 191% and the largest ever reported from such a study. A total of 131 patients were enrolled with the interim analysis being conducted on the first 97 to complete the trial. The trial also reached statistical significance in favor of Grafix on all top-line secondary endpoints, demonstrating faster wound closure and a reduction in the number of treatments needed to achieve wound closure. In the crossover phase of the trial, patients whose wounds failed to close after 12 weeks of standard of care had an 80% closure rate when switched to Grafix. Importantly, patients randomized to receive standard of care were 74% more likely to experience an adverse event than those receiving Grafix (p=0.008). As a result, the blinded phase of the trial is being discontinued immediately and all patients randomized to the control arm will be offered treatment with Grafix. “Today, Osiris has established a new standard in diabetic wound care and has demonstrated to the world the tremendous impact stem cell products can have in medicine,” said C. Randal Mills, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer. “Diabetic foot ulcers afflict 25% of all diabetics and are responsible for more hospitalizations than any other diabetic complication. With 25 million diabetics in the United States, the cost to our health care system is enormous. Through this rigorous study we have shown that Grafix can heal more patients, in less time, and with fewer complications.”

Some Revealing Facts About 9/11 That You ... - Toronto 911 Truth

Some Revealing Facts About 9/11 That You Need To Know. 1) The 19 hijackers. 15 of them are Saudi Arabian’s while no aggression has been driven toward Saudi Arabia. Completely the opposite actually, a strong business relationship [Oil] remains intact and 2 days after 9/11 more than 100 Saudi’s were privately flown out of the country without questioning while all other air traffic was virtually grounded. The BBC and the Guardian have reported that at least 6 of the hijackers are still alive while the FBI website continues to post the original hijackers as dead… and they are unaccounted for on the passenger lists. 2) Steel-Framed Buildings Don’t Collapse Due To Fires. WTC buildings 1, 2, and 7 were the first to collapse by fire. Some may argue that there have been collapses in the past, but they fail to point out the differences. The WTC buildings all collapsed in a manner resembling controlled demolition – at free fall speeds and in their own footprints. 3) WTC Collapses From A Few Small Fires. Fires that really never started until about 3pm caused WTC 7, a 47 steel framed building [an emergency bunker that was vacated earlier that day], to collapse in it’s foot print. Facts surrounding this event were left out of the 9/11 Commission Report. WTC 7 housed the offices of the CIA, FBI and other federal branches. Incidentally, all records involving investigations of government and wallstreet fraud were destroyed. 4) Bombs Going Off At Ground Zero. Literally hundreds of eyewitness heard and saw numerous explosions going off at Ground Zero, including an explosion in Tower 1 seconds before the...

ReThink911 September 4 Release - ReThink911.org

ReThink911 Launches Global Public Awareness Campaign for 12th Anniversary of 9/11 The ReThink911 Campaign, sponsored by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, is a global public awareness campaign launched this week in an effort to spark a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001. On a 54-foot-tall Times Square billboard and a variety of transit and outdoor advertising in Boston, Washington, DC, Chicago, Dallas, San Diego, San Francisco, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Sydney and London, accompanied by citizen activist events all over the world, the campaign poses the question, “Did you know a 3rd tower fell on 9/11?” To this day, many people are not aware that a third skyscraper, 47-story World Trade Center Building 7, mysteriously collapsed in seven seconds a few hours after the World Trade Center Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. Many reputable and credentialed technical professionals challenge the official report on this building’s collapse by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The ReThink911 campaign calls for a new investigation to answer questions about the collapse of Building 7 and the Twin Towers 12 years ago. “The official story of what happened at Ground Zero simply cannot be true,” said Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Founder Richard Gage. “More than 2,000 professional architects and engineers, along with family members of victims and thousands of concerned citizens, believe a truly independent investigation is...
