Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR - News) recently completed flight testing of its new carbon brake
for the U.
Goodrich Corporation's Boeing 737 Next Generation wheel and carbon brake
equipment is achieving exceptional brake life and reliability at launch customer flydubai, a low-cost carrier based in Dubai.
The carbon brakes
makes use of proprietary trademarked DURACARB carbon heat sink material which offers four times longer life as compared with the existing carbon brake

Among his topics are hydroplaning of H-type aircraft tires, a longitudinal slip tire model for brake control systems, predicting landing gear carbon brake
vibration and performance with subscale test and analysis, reducing aircraft brake squeal with a damped brake-rod, and the technical development of aircraft electric brakes.
Goodrich will supply wheels and carbon brake
equipment for flydubai's entire fleet of more than 50 Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 aircraft and will retrofit its existing six aircraft.
Jerry Wood, director of research and technology at Honeywell Landing Systems, says that when considering carbon brake
systems--even in automotive applications--it's important to take a big-picture approach.
