A drum brake is a brake that uses friction caused by a set of shoes or pads that press outward against a rotating cylinder-shaped part called a brake drum. The drum brake diagrams below show how all the parts of the brake work together.
The backing plate provides a base for the other components. The back plate also increases the rigidity of the whole set-up, supports the housing, and protects it from foreign materials like dust and other road debris. Brake shoes are typically made of two pieces of steel welded together. The friction material is either riveted to the lining table or attached with adhesive. The crescent-shaped piece is called the Web and contains holes and slots in different shapes for return springs, hold-down hardware, parking brake linkage, and self-adjusting components.
