A type of older - but still popular and effective - automotive brake in which a circular drum rotates around a set of brake shoes which are fixed to the hub and act on the drum by expanding.
A foundation or parking brake utilizing shoe-type friction elements forced against a cylindrical or drum surface for stopping ability; internal-shoe-type (shoes inside drum) is most common.
A type of automotive brake in which curved metal shoes carrying the friction material are expanded either hydraulically or mechanically against the inside surface of a drum-shaped component that rotates with the wheel, thus slowing the vehicle.
Braking system employing a brake drum attached to the wheel hub – which revolves - and a pair of non-rotating brake shoes fixed to the axle.
Brake in which brake shoes lined with friction material are forced against the periphery of a drum or cylinder
hydraulic brake in which friction is applied to the inside of a spinning drum by the brake shoe
a (A restraint used to slow or stop a vehicle) brake in which the (The resistance encountered when one body is moved in
a brake threaded onto the rear hub, designed to act as a drag brake to scrub speed on a long or technical descent, so the rims don't overheat from constant application of rim brakes
a hand-operated brake which is built into, or attached to the hub of a wheel, with shoes that press against the inside of a cylindrical drum
A braking system where a hydraulic cylinder forces a pair of brake shoes against the inner surface of the brake drum, which is a metal cylinder, in order to stop the vehicle.
A brake assembly with friction linings on 'shoes' running inside a cylindrical drum attached to the wheel. Dual circuit brakes - A hydraulic braking system consisting of two separate fluid circuits, so that if one circuit becomes inoperative, braking power is still available from the other circuit.
A hollow drum is attached to the wheel and rotates with it. When you push the brake pedal, two shoes press against the inside surface of the drum to slow and stop the wheel.
Design in which a drum-shaped component is attached inboard of the wheel. Shoes then press the brake linings against the inside of the drum to provide braking action.
A brake system that slows a wheel’s rotation by pressing curved brake shoes against the inside of an attached metal drum Read more SEE RELATED TERMS: antilock braking system (ABS)
All Corvettes built before 1965 have them, but the term usually refers to the few 1965 models without disc brakes.
A braking system which consists of two brake shoes and one or two wheel cylinders, mounted on a fixed backing plate, and a brake drum, mounted on an axle, which revolves around the assembly.
A drum brake is a brake in which the friction is caused by a set of shoes or pads that press against the inner surface of a rotating drum. The drum is connected to a rotating wheel.
