Understanding the physical mechanisms resulting from dry sliding contact disc/pads, require an experimental simulation represented by a disc and a pin, under the influence of a number of braking parameters, such as the nature of the disc material and pin, the load applied by the pin in, and the rotational speed of the disc. On the other hand to apprehend the evolution of the tribological behavior of braking materials, it is a critic to understand the answer of the brake disc materials in the environments especially in the littoral environment where humidity and salinity rate are very high. However, the corrosion of the contact emerges because these environments have a large effect on the friction coefficient and the wear of the brake discs materials.
