In this article, a novel electromagnetic-frictional integrated brake is proposed, and its structure and working principle are introduced. The geometric model and mathematical models of integrated brake were established, and the multi-field coupling mechanism of integrated brake were analyzed. With BYD Qin as a reference vehicle, the boundary conditions of thermal load and force load of integrated brake were determined according to its structure and performance parameters. Based on the COMSOL software, numerical coupling calculations of electric, magnetic, thermal, and solid fields of integrated brake were carried out respectively in the emergency and downhill braking at a constant speed. The axial, circumferential, and radial temperature distributions of integrated brake disc were analyzed respectively, and they were compared with those of the traditional friction brake disc. The analysis results show that the proposed integrated brake can effectively improve the heat fading resistance of automotive brake during emergency and continuous braking. Under the two braking conditions, the temperature rise of friction brake was faster than that of an electromagnetic brake, and the effect of the electromagnetic brake on temperature rise of integrated brake was small.
