PRACTICAL AID TO OFF-ROAD TIRE EVALUATION WITH BEVAMETER TECHNIQUES
A simple method based on bevameter soil values enables the engineer to evaluate the motion resistance of a pneumatic tire, in the given soil, and to perform parametric analyses of design and performance. The parameters measured include, besides soil parameters, the following characteristics of the tire: width, diameter, inflation pressure, carcass stiffness, and load. An inexpensive electronic desk calculator assures accuracy of prediction that is more than satisfactory.
