Friction Studies – From Passive to Intelligent Tires
MetadataShow full item record
A major problem in highway safety and traffic engineering is to understand the mechanisms of friction between the tire and the road. Pavement surface texture significantly contributes to tire-pavement friction. Several researchers have claimed that road profiles are fractal, and that this fractality is related to the friction properties of the road. The objective here is to present texture properties and contact mechanics that can predict tire-pavement friction.
