ABSTRACT
‘Turbotor’ employs the principles of turbo machinery and automotive engineering in order to achieve effective braking assistance for the modern day disc as well as drum brakes. These brakes are intended for the purpose of braking assists during high speed motion. The major components include a turbine or rotor, pump, nozzle, enlarged brake fluid chamber, DOT 5.1 braking fluid. The functioning involves directing a jet of high velocity brake fluid (DOT 5.1 in this case) at the blades of the rotor which is coupled with the wheel. The braking circuit is used as such with the enlargement of the brake fluid chamber. A pump is added to the set up to enable increase of mass flow rate of fluid and also to ensure the continuity of fluid flow in the entire circuit. A speed sensor is integrated along with the circuit to activate the pump such that the braking assists are put to use only after a particular velocity is reached as braking assists are not necessary at lower speeds.
