Abstract

Currently available friction testing devices do not allow for the evaluation of the interaction between relative speed, pressure and temperature on friction. A Skid Resistance Interface Testing Device (SR-ITD®) has been designed for the study of the influence and the interaction of the various phenomena occurring at the rubber stone interface. The device enables various combinations of slip velocity and pressure to be applied with concurrent measurement of temperature in the interface regions. On the basis of the results of an extensive series of tests on three types of stone and two types of rubbers, it has been demonstrated that the sensitivity of tire rubber friction to speed and pressure can be directly attributed to the temperature dependence of the rheological properties of rubber.
