IMPROVED ADHESION BETWEEN TIRE AND ROAD- RESULTS OF A NEW FRICTION THEORY /IN GERMAN/

FACTORS ARE LISTED WHICH INFLUENCE THE FRICTION CONDITIONS BETWEEN A TIRE AND A WET ROAD, SUCH AS FORCE OF WATER, VEHICLE SPEED AND SURFACE IRREGULARITY, AND THEN A NEW THEORY OF RUBBER FRICTION IS DEVELOPED, IN WHICH THE MECHANISMS OF ADHESION AND HYSTERESIS ARE CONSIDERED AS EQUIVALENTS. FROM THE STUDY, REQUIREMENTS FOR SURFACE ROUGHNESS ARE DEVELOPED. WAYS OF INCREASING FRICTION BETWEEN TIRE AND ROAD ARE DISCUSSED. THESE INCLUDE THE OPTIMIZATION OF SURFACE ROUGHNESS, IMPROVEMENTS IN TIRE TREADS AND PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION IN TIRES, AND REDUCTION OF THE VERTICAL WHEEL OSCILLATIONS AND WHEEL LOAD FLUCTUATIONS ON THE VEHICLE. /FG/RRL/
