Brake Booster calcs

Brake Booster calcs

Brake Booster calcs

I would like some assistance in working out the contribution on pressure/force of brake boosters (twin boosters, in this case) in understanding the forces in braking.  Everything else is mathematically straight.

There are space considerations which warrant the removal of the boosters and use of adjustable twin master cylnders.


RE: Brake Booster calcs

The booster is fed through a one way check valve from the intake. The vacuum applied over the diaphram area is the boost applied to the secondary piston.
I pitched the twin boosters on my Lotus and replaced the Master with a smaller bore. Much more direct and better feedback.
