A frame for confining a refractory horse while the smith is shoeing him; also, an inclosure to restrain cattle, horses, etc.
That part of a carriage, as of a movable battery, or engine, which enables it to turn.
A piece of mechanism for retarding or stopping motion by friction, as of a carriage or railway car, by the pressure of rubbers against the wheels, or of clogs or ratchets against the track or roadway, or of a pivoted lever against a wheel or drum in a machine.
An apparatus for testing the power of a steam engine, or other motor, by weighing the amount of friction that the motor will overcome; a friction brake.
The brake is a piece of wood that is attached to the center brace under the basket. It has a steel claw on the end that the musher steps on to stop the sled. It is attached to the sled by a long spring.
A nod to Newton: objects in motion tend to stay in motion (see doorstop entry for an alternate view). Shortly after bicycles were invented, manufacturers were forced to develop and install devices to facilitate stopping, despite industry objections that this was an intolerable infringement on the free market and would "Price bicycles beyond the reach of average consumers." Makers of shoe leather also complained bitterly, but the tide of history was against them. Popular varieties today include disc and V-brakes.
A device to slow the motion of a vehicle or to prevent inadvertent motion when parked.
An energy conversion mechanism used to stop, or hold a vehicle stationary. (49CFR393)
Any mechanical device for arresting motion of a wheel, a motor, or a vehicle, chiefly by means of friction or pressure. (see brake block)
To stop or slow a motorcycle using the brakes. See also Panic-brake.
Device used to halt of slow down a train. There are several different types of brakes; here are the most common: fin brakes, magnetic brakes, and trim brakes.
Any device used to slow or stop motion, usually through friction, which converts mechanical energy into heat energy.
n: The braking device on the drawworks or airhoist to stop a load being lifted. It is a device for arresting the motion of a mechanism, usually by means of friction, as in the drawworks and airhoist brakes.
A mechanism that diminishes or prevents the motion of another device.
Device for slowing a car or component by converting mechanical energy to heat.
The mechanism used on a mechanical power press to stop and/or hold the crankshaft, either directly or through a gear train, when the clutch is disengaged.
a restraint used to slow or stop a vehicle
stop travelling by applying a brake; "We had to brake suddenly when a chicken crossed the road"
cause to stop by applying the brakes; "brake the car before you go into a curve"
a device for slowing or stopping the motion of a machine A machine is any mechanical or electrical device that transmits or modifies energy to perform or assist in the performance of tasks
a friction devise to overcome that motion
a UK road safety charity dedicated to stopping deaths and injuries on roads through awareness-raising campaigns, ArriveAlive - road safety in South Africa
The part of the bike that creates enough friction to slow you down when needed.
A device that creates friction to a surface to slow it, stop it, or hold it stationary; a device that slows or stops the rotation of the wheels, so tyre friction slows or stops a vehicle.
(a) Bending brake or press brake- A form of open frame, single action press comparatively wide between the housings, with bed designed for holding long narrow forming edges or dies. It is used for bending and forming strips and plates. (b) The friction mechanism used for stopping or controlling the motion of a press, feed or other mechanism.
Various systems used to stop the rotor from turning.
A disc brake which can be applied mechanically, electrically, or hydraulically to stop the rotor in emergencies.
A machine for turning or bending the edges of sheet metal. Alternately, any device for slowing or stopping a machine or vehicle.
wooden or iron brake shoe encircling the brake wheel
Just like the emergency brake on a car -- when applied, it helps prevent the wheel from rolling.
A device, other than a motor, used for retarding or stopping motion by friction or power means.
Two- and three-seated sporting rigs, four-wheeled and open; two-seated brake toys are especially prized and are known in only a few advanced collections.
An electro-mechanical device used to prevent the elevator from moving when the car is at rest and no power is applied to the hoist motor.
A friction device used to bring conveyor components to a controlled stop and/or prevent them from moving once stopped.
machine element used to stop motion.
(Machine Safety) A mechanism for stopping, slowing or preventing motion.
Brake is the district seat of Wesermarsch district in the administrative region (Regierungsbezirk) of Weser-Ems in Lower Saxony in northern Germany. It has 16,275 inhabitants (2003).
