HYDROPLANING AND TREAD PATTERN HYDRODYNAMICS

The document presents the final report on analytical and laboratory studies directed toward the development of a set of tire performance parameters containing the aspects of tread pattern geometry which are relevant to water expulsion effectiveness. Current knowledge of the hydroplaning phenomenon is reviewed and utilized in interpreting the results of laboratory experiments designed to measure the water expulsion effectiveness of a tread pattern.
