Experimental Measurements of the Effect of Path Clearing on Hydroplaning Behavior 2011-01-0975

Vehicles operating in wet conditions may experience hydroplaning of one or more tires. Proper analysis of this behavior requires accommodating the clearing of paths for the rear tires that may result from the front tires engaging the water coated surface first. An experimental program was developed to study tire/road behavior during straight line braking maneuvers on a wet surface. Wheel rpm values were measured with operating ABS via CAN bus data. The experiments allowed qualitative estimation and visualization of the effects of path clearing on rear tires.
