In this paper the effect on braking torque of the geometry of contact between brake shoes and drums is presented. It is shown that elastic deformation as well as errors in dimensional and assembly errors substantially affect the value of the braking torque. Investigations of pressure distribution on friction lining, brake factor, brake element deformation, and wear of linings carried out on mine winder installations are presented.
