Disc brake - Wikipedia
Disc brake. Close-up of a disc brake on a car. A disc brake is a type of brake that uses calipers to squeeze pairs of pads against a rotor (or "disc") in order to create friction that retards the rotation of a shaft, such as a vehicle axle, either to reduce its rotational speed or to hold it stationary.

How Disc Brakes Work | HowStuffWorks
Disc brakes are the most common brakes found on a car's front wheels, and they're often on all four. This is the part of the brake system that does the actual work of stopping the car. Find out all about disc brakes -- even when to replace the pads.

Disc Brake Basics - How Disc Brakes Work | HowStuffWorks
The disc brake is a lot like the brakes on a bicycle. Bicycle brakes have a caliper, which squeezes the brake pads against the wheel. In a disc brake, the brake pads squeeze the rotor instead of the wheel, and the force is transmitted hydraulically instead of through a cable.
