The Effect of Hydroplaning on the Dynamic Characteristics of Car, Truck and Bus Tires 780195

This report deals with the tests made on the hydroplaning phenomenon of car, truck and bus tires using the interior of a dynamic tire testing machine. For car tires, the relationship between braking force and slip ratio and between cornering force and slip angle as affected by hydroplaning were investigated. Studies were also made of the influence of the difference between radial-ply and cross-ply tires, inner pressure, load, thickness of the water film, etc.. Next, a study was conducted concerning the effect of hydroplaning on the cornering properties of truck and bus tires.
