Suggested Merge with Band Brake
Don't merge. The statement at Band brake that it is a torque measuring device addresses only a small part of what a band brake is. It is often a primary braking device. Taquito1 (talk) 21:15, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
- Please see the discussion at talk:band brake. We understand that band brakes are used for more than this application. Wizard191 (talk) 23:12, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
Coefficient of friction
There may be some variations of the device, where it's not necessary to take account of the Coefficient of friction; on some variations of such brake devices, I'm quite sure it is to mention, which materials are rubbing.
Additionally, some of the torque goes into heating the brake components.
