ROLLING CHARACTERISTICS OF SMALL SIZE PNEUMATIC TYRES

The dynamic characteristics of single-track vehicles are predominantly governed by forces and moments of tyre-pavement interaction. No experimental data are available in the literature on the rolling characteristics of the small size pneumatic tyres used on scotters. In the present investigations, a flat-type tyre testing machine was developed at Roorkee (India) and the free rolling characteristics of Dunlop 3-50-8, Inchek 3-50-8 and Kicorma 3-50-8 and 3-50-10 have been experimentally determined. Effects of tread wear and rim size have also been investigated and reported.
