A TREAD-DEFLECTION MEASUREMENT SYSTEM UTILIZED IN TIRE HYDROPLANING STUDIES
The tread-deflection measurement system was developed to investigate the transient response of a sliding tire as it encounters a change in free waterfilm thickness. The system is capable of measuring transient deflection changes in the contact region of a tire within one millisecond intervals. This system provides data in a form which enables evaluation of tire footprint shapes as a function of time for both steady state and transient hydroplaning conditions.
