EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH OF TIRES ROLLING RESISTANCE
The paper presents the results of a laboratory measurement of rolling resistance of two different types of tires on a concrete surface. A soil test channel was used to realization of the measurements. The article presents the results of laboratory measurement of rolling resistance of two different types of tires on a concrete surface. A soil test channel was used to perform the measurements. The result of the measurements was the determination of the rolling resistance coefficient. Linear function approximation and statistical analysis were applied in the research. The conclusions of the analysis confirmed the fact that the values of the measured rolling resistance coefficients of both types of tires do not show a statistically significant difference. The obtained results confirmed the assumption that the values of the rolling resistances on a solid surface can be reduced by increasing the tire inflation pressure.
