High-Speed Cornering Forces 560031

THIS is a preliminary report of tire tests on cornering and self-alignment torque as they are affected by high-speed driving.
Made at 100 mph on a standard chassis and a 10-ft test wheel, the experiments confirmed most previous smaller-scale, lower-speed work; but, the author reports, they also showed that self-aligning torque does not drop off at higher speeds at normal slip angle, as previously believed, and in addition suggested areas of the alignment torque problem which need (and are currently getting) further study.
