Brake Temperature

Recommended Posts

Just noticed that the indicated brake temp doesn't change when landing with autobrakes set to 2. Is this correct?

Could it be you're not waiting long enough before looking? It takes a while for the temperature to reach the sensors. Per the FCTM:

Quote

The optional brake temperature monitoring system may be used for additional flight crew guidance in assessing brake energy absorption. This system indicates a stabilized value approximately fifteen minutes after brake energy absorption. Therefore, an immediate or reliable indication of tire or hydraulic fluid fire, wheel bearing problems, or wheel fracture is not available. The brake temperature monitor readings may vary between brakes during normal braking operations.

Consider this. Are you using reverse thrust? Autobrake controls the rate of deceleration i.e. more reverse thrust, less actual wheel braking.
