Abstract:

This paper describes the development of a new laboratory test than can be used to evaluate the factors relating to the generation of tire/road noise. Known as the ULTRA Road Surface Influence or USI test, an internal drum machine was used to assess different types of road surface using smooth and treaded tires at different speed, loading and tire pressure conditions. Speed and tire type were found to be the two most important test variables followed by loading and tire pressure. As expected, chipping size and texture depth was found to influence the test. The USI test was able to rank the test surfaces in relation to their onsite performance. The method may be used to predict expected tire/road noise priority on-site laying.
