MEASURING SKID RESISTANCE OF PASSENGER CAR TIRES ON AN INDOOR FACILITY

Skid resistance properties of three typical passenger car tires were measured on a wet road surface. A bias ply, a bias belted and a radial ply tire of the G78-14 size series were used in these tests. The tests included straight ahead braking at three speeds and three inclination angles, braking and driving in a turn over a wide range of slip angles, and free rolling cornering and camber. Salient results are presented in the form of plots to demonstrate the capability of the test facility and show the influence of speed, slip angle, inclination angle, and tire construction on the skid characteristics of passenger car tires. A brief description of the test facility and test methods employed in traction testing is included. /Author/
