PAVEMENT NEAR BY STUDDED RADIAL AND DIAGONAL TYPE TIRES

BELAEGGNINGSSLITAGE GENOM DUBBADE RADIAL-OCH DIAGONALDAECK-EN JAEMFOERELSE

Tests have revealed that no statistically significant difference in pavement wear could be established when comparing wear caused by studded radial and diagonal tires. The test track had two straight parallel sections connected by semicircles. On the straight sections, the vehicle path simulated a take-over and the surface courses had 200 per and 80 pen bitumen. Measurements of stud protrusion and stud reaction force showed higher force with the radial tires, suggesting that radial tires may have caused lower wear if the reaction forces of the two types of tires had been the same. An Austrian study has shown that the proportion of wear due to radial and diagonal tires is independent of vehicle speed within quite wide limits.
