Thermoelastic instability in automotive disk brake systems is investigated focusing on the effect of a finite disk thickness. A finite layer model with an antisymmetric mode of deformation can estimate the onset of instability observed in actual disk brake systems. Also some effects of system parameters on stability are found to agree well to experimental observations.
