Braking Torque Equation and Calculator:

Brake torque is the force applied at the brake wheel to stop the motion of the moving equipment.Assuming the operating conditions for the equipment are con- stant, a brake having a retarding torque equal to the full load torque of the motor to which it is applied is usually satisfactory.

Symbols used:
I = moment of inertia of a pair of wheels
α = angular deceleration of wheels
rn = mass of vehicle
u = coefficient of friction between wheels and road
g = gravity
Tf = Torque
Tbf = Torque Total Front
Tbr = Torque Total Rear
