It has many variables and factors to design the friction materials for automotive brake pads. In this study, the friction and wear characteristics of automotive blake pads have been studied using 1:l full size dynamo meter. Using conventional manners, it takes a great of time and efforts to know that it affects the each raw materials for friction characteristics. For the purpose of examining the effect of each major raw materials, we used the more convenient Taguchi L9 ($3^4$) orthogonal matrix and 1/5 scale dynamo machine for evaluation of the friction characteristics of composite brake pads.
