Study of Hydroplaning Risk on Rolling and Sliding Passenger Car

Hydroplaning speed is known to vary over a range of tire slipping conditions from free rolling to completely skidding. An attempt has been made to simulate two extreme conditions of hydroplaning i.e. when the tire is completely rolling (0% slip) and a completely locked tire (100% slip). American Society of Testing Method (ASTM) standard smooth tire moving over the plane pavement surface is considered in the model. The analysis showed that the hydroplaning risk associated with the locked tire is more than the rolling tire. The modeling was carried out using the commercial finite element software package, ABAQUS.
