This arrangement allows great force to be exerted by the brakes.

At this sentence, can I replace ''to be exerted'' with ''which is exerted''. Is there any difference between them?

Thanks for your help!

No. The sentence employs the following verb construction, but in a passive voice.

to allow something to happen

It's correct as is. This allows (the force to be exerted.) The parenthetical bit is a complete thought.
