With the tire inflation pressure of 100 kpa, the hydroplaning speed is 70 km/h in the simulation and 63.6 km/h in the NASA equation; with the tire inflation pressure of 250 kpa, the hydroplaning speed is 107.6 km/h in the simulation and 100.56 km/h in the NASA equation.
Contact force at tire-pavement interface and critical hydroplaning speed in these situations are calculated and compared.
The contact force and critical hydroplaning speed on AC pavement are illustrated in Figure 13.
Figure 13(b) presents the variation of critical hydroplaning speed when tire inflation pressure changes from 100 kpa to 250 kpa.
Figure 14(b) illustrates the impact of water film thickness on critical hydroplaning speed. The speed decreases with a slower trend when the water film thickness increases from 0.5 mm to 10 mm.
