Truck Tire Wet Traction: Effects of Water Depth, Speed, Tread Depth, Inflation, and Load 962153

The traction effects of water depth, speed, tread wear, inflation, and load on typical 295/75R22.5 truck tires have been examined in a set of designed experiments conducted on a single pavement. The results have been typified in terms of regression models of aligning moment and lateral force at 4 degrees slip angle plus peak longitudinal force and longitudinal force at slide during braking. The effects of the principal parameters are catalogued. An approximate idea of the effect of the operational and tread wear state parameters on the ability to control vehicle motion is provided within the discussion.
