THE INFLUENCE OF WATER DEPTH AND DRIVING SPEED ON THE MAXIMUM BRAKING FORCES OF CAR TYRES IN RELATION TO THE TYRE WIDTH, TYRE CONSTRUCTION AND DEPTH OF TREAD

EINFLUSS VON WASSERHOEHE UND FAHRGESCHWINDIGKEIT AUF DIE MAXIMALEN BREMSKRAEFTE VON PKW-REIFEN IN ABHAENGIGKEIT VON REIFENBREITE, REIFENBAUART UND PROFILHOEHE

A discussion is presented of the most important factors influencing the magnitude of the friction coefficient on wet pavements in relation to a general outline of the make up of the forces acting on tyres under wet conditions. On the bases of measurements from test rigs the influence of the driving speed and of the water depths is also examined for various widths of tyre and depth of tread. In order to clarify these influences, mass produced tyres of various types of construction were examined to determine their maximum possible braking forces. /TRRL/
