NOTE ON THE MEASUREMENT OF RUNWAY TRACTION

The ability to predict the stopping performance of aircraft is closely related to the accurate measurement of peak traction at the tire-runway interface. Efforts to correlate ground vehicle measurements with automotive tires to airplace performance have not been very successful. Major differences exist between automotive tires and the Type VII aircraft tires that contribute to this lack of correlation. Additionally, the ground vehicle should also have a brake cycling device. A tire model law is being developed to achieve a better correlation.
