ACCELERATED TIRE WEAR UNDER CONTROLLED CONDITIONS. I - DESCRIPTION OF THE TEST SYSTEM

Tire wear is produced by a series of complex physical and chemical reactions occuring at the rubber-pavement interface. This paper describes the test system required to study this phenomenon. Tire force level, temperature and pavement texture are studied by means of a two wheeled trailer and towing vehicle fitted with recording instruments and measuring devices. The testing is done under accelerated conditions.
