MEASUREMENT AND PREDICTION OF THE DYNAMIC TIRE FORCES OF A PASSENGER VEHICLE ON A HIGHWAY

VEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS ARE DETERMINED BY OPERATING THE VEHICLE ON A PAVEMENT HAVING A KNOWN PAVEMENT ROUGHNESS SPECTRUM AND MEASURING THE DYNAMIC TIRE FORCES. IF THE VEHICLE IS THEN DRIVEN OVER A SECOND PAVEMENT HAVING A PAVEMENT ROUGHNESS SPECTRUM SIMILAR TO THE FIRST PAVEMENT, THE DYNAMIC TIRE FORCES PREDICTED USING THE VEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS WILL AGREE REASONABLY WELL WITH THOSE MEASURED EXPERIMENTALLY. EXAMPLES ARE INCLUDED. A FULL DISCUSSION IS INCLUDED OF THE PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED IN UNDERTAKING THIS INVESTIGATION. /FHWA/
