THE SKIDDING RESISTANCE OF WET RUNWAY SURFACES WITH REFERENCES TO SURFACE TEXTURE AND TYRE CONDITIONS

THE RESULTS ARE SUMMERIZED OF BRAKING TESTS MADE WITH AN AIRCRAFT TIRE TO STUDY THE EFFECT OF SURFACE TEXTURE, WHEEL LOAD, TIRE PRESSURE, TREAD PATTERN AND TIRE WEAR ON THE SKIDDING RESISTANCE OF WET SURFACES AT SPEEDS UP TO 100 KM/H (60 MILE/H). OF THE VARIOUS FACTORS STUDIED, SURFACE TEXTURE AFFECTED BRAKING PERFORMANCE TO THE GREATEST EXTENT. IT WAS ALSO FOUND THAT THE SKIDDING RESISTANCE OF THE COARSE TEXTURED SURFACES TESTED WAS LESS AFFECTED BY CHANGES IN TIRE CONDITIONS, SUCH AS LOAD, PRESSURE AND WEAR, THAN THE FINE TEXTURED SURFACES. /AUTHOR/
