TIRE TRACTION TESTING IN THE WINTER ENVIRONMENT
This paper reviews the reasons for winter environment traction testing of passenger car and truck tires and the engineering techniques currently used. Test course preparation for both snow and ice surfaces are discussed. Typical instrumentation and data acquisition systems are presented as are various means of analyzing data. The paper concludes with recommendations for standardizing test methodology to improve the effectiveness and usefulness of tire testing in the winter environment.
