THE PREDICTION OF TYRE FRICTION ON WET ROADS UNDER BRAKING AND CORNERING

This thesis extends the prediction of tyre-road friction from surface texture and tread rubber properties developed by Yandell et al to cover all ranges of percent slip, S (sub x) and slip angles, alpha. It looks at factors such as braking force coefficient (BFC), sideways force coefficient (SFC), friction, and the coefficient of braking. It presents a model of tyre stiffness based on empirical measurements made using the Multi Mode Friction Test Truck (MMFTT). PhD thesis submitted to the University of New South Wales School of Civil Engineering.
