Effects of Atmospheric Conditions on the Mechanical Properties of Tires


Article Preview

Safe driving requires from the driver several visual-mental activities (perception, Proper selection of the tires depending on the season allows for optimizing the level of risk associated with driving in varying weather conditions. Properties tires used in the vehicle operational parameters show variability of depending on temperature, leading consequently to change the characteristics of the traction of the vehicle. Understanding the nature of these relationships is essential to determine the nature interaction. tires and road surface This paper presents experimental results hardness of tires under normal traffic using a mobile measuring equipment.
