PAVEMENT AND TIRE ROLLING RESISTANCE COEFFICIENTS FOR VEHICLE ENERGY PREDICTION

The individual tractive resistance forces which must be overcome to provide the vehicle with motion at the desired speed, must be examined and evaluated to model the performance of trucks mathematically. Many investigators have published work on this subject, but a comparison of their results show rather wide variations in some places. Further, tire and road materials and vehicle mechanics have changed over the years and some of the equation coefficients in print need to be evaluated in the light of present practice.
