"Drum Brakes"

A drum brake uses cylindrical, cast iron housing that contains curved brake shoes that are forced into contact with an inner drum to provide braking to stop a vehicle. They are simple and effective, but less effective than disc brakes under harsher conditions. Many times drum brakes will be used on the rear brakes and disc brakes on the front.
