Tyre consumption.

Memos giving additional background to mechanistic tyre modelling.
This study has aimed to determine an appropriate formulation for the calculation of tyre wear in HDM 4. In particular, a method has been proposed for calculating the eased tyre wear which occurs in congested traffic conditions, compared to free flowing traffic conditions at the same mean speed on a homogeneous section of road.

This study has aimed to determine an appropriate formulation for the calculation of tyre wear in HDM 4. In particular, a method has been proposed for calculating the increased tyre wear which occurs in congested traffic conditions, compared to free flowing traffic conditions at the same mean speed on a homogeneous section of road.
This report presents the results of a research project to investigate the suitability of fixed slip friction meters for on-road determination of pavement surface arasiveness. It was intended that this would involve establishing a degree of correlation between tyre abrasion and the road surface friction coefficient, as measured by Central Laboratories' Findlay Irvine GripTester.
