Nowadays the braking system has become more advanced than earlier days due to the use of Disc Brakes. In the present study, an attempt has been made to model a break for two-wheeler for evaluating thermal analysis point of view. The Six different brakes have been modeled with thickness as 3.5 mm along with circular holes and oval-shaped holes. The first case is taken as a disc with a circular hole and thickness 3.5 mm where four holes of 8 mm diameters have been provided and horizontal spacing between these holes is changed which gives six different models. The second case is considered as a disc with oval holes, thickness 3.5 mm where four oval- shaped holes of 8 mm wide and 18mml long are provided. The aim of this study is to find out the effect of hole geometries on the temperature and total heat flux value for different materials. Since the effectiveness of  brake is considered based upon, the maximum rate of heat dissipation.
