How do I convert an engineering callout of "must having braking force of 0.6g with pedal force of no more than 80 lbs" into a measurable force (ideally in newtons) that I can use to measure on a chassis dynameter (aka rolling road) in a production environment? We normally just check braking force go/no go; however, we are looking to check a brake bias between front and back and want to get a more meaningful number from the engineering callout.
I have the vehicle weight + CG, rolling road roller diameter, and am working on getting the coefficient of friction for both the tire and rolling road roller surface.
