Weight Influence in Super Economic Vehicle Rolling Resistance 2008-36-0209

The objective of this work is analyze the weight influence in super economic vehicle rolling resistance tyre for low velocity. One of the principal factors in fuel consume is the rolling resistance, once, in low velocity the aerodynamic drag is not very pronunciation. The rolling resistance analysis was made using a rolling belt instrumented with velocity between 1.5 km/h and 9 km/h) and weight between 0 (zero) and 300 N. The analysis results, permits an equation elaboration, relationship weight and velocity for one tyre rigidity.
