Learning Objectives

  1. Define the principles associated with pneumatic braking systems.
  2. Recognize the common components that make up the pneumatic braking system.
  3. Understand how the foundation brakes work with the pneumatic braking system.
  4. Identify the components of a pneumatic drum brake and explain how it functions.
  5. Identify the components of a pneumatic disc brake and explain how it functions.

Pneumatic braking systems use compressed air to multiply the braking capability of the braking system in order to stop larger vehicles.
