This issue of Current Topics in Transport includes abstracts of some of the published literature (reports, conference papers, books and journal articles) on the design, safety and testing of tyres for cars, lorries, buses and other vehicles. Amongst specific subjects included are skidding resistance, cornering stiffness, and rolling resistance of tyres; tyre pressure; studded tyre design; simulation techniques for tyre design and the recycling of old tyres. These items have been selected from the material added to the Transport Research Laboratory's Library Database between 1990 and 1995. Much of the relevant English language published literature from the UK, USA, Australia and Europe is included; some of the non-UK literature is included courtesy of the OECD International Road Research Documentation (IRRD) database.
