Towards an Indoor Winter Tire Classification Test
2012 (English)In: Proceedings of VSDIA 2012, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
From a traffic safety perspective it is highly motivated to define winter tires interms of their performance in icy road conditions. The present definition of winter(snow) tires, introduced in the EU in 2012, is based on packed snow performance.The present paper investigates the feasibility of an indoor winter tire classificationtest on ice. Results presented here indicates that a test procedure in an indoorhockey rink is possible, with relatively high repeatability. However, further fieldtest is required to fully establish feasibility of the procedure.
