The Science of heat transfer allows us to determine the time rate of energy transfer caused by non equilibrium of temperatures. The importance of heat transfer in proper design of Automobiles has long been recognized. In this paper we determined the transient temperature distributions in a disc brake during a single brake application using Finite difference numerical technique. Hyperbolic heat conduction which includes the effect of the finite heat propagation is gaining importance. It is necessary to consider hyperbolic heat conduction in problems involving short time intervals and for very high heat fluxes. Here we considered both parabolic and hyperbolic heat conduction and the results are evaluated numerically, represented graphically and analyzed by comparing the temperature profiles corresponding to parabolic and hyperbolic heat conduction.
