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).
