Abstract [en]

The goal in this thesis was to reduce a multilayer shim model, which was modeled from steel and polymer (isotropic materials), into an equivalent single layer shim model. The procedure was to use mathematical formulations to convert a multilayer shim into an ESL (equivalent single layer) shim. Here, a transverse isotropic model is used to prepare for future orthotropic layers. The results show that the ESL model behaves isotropically. In the 2 layer model there was no squeal noise whereas in the ESL models there is.
