G. slippery roads due to rain, snow or ice, and in these circumstances although there are active safety enhancements associated with the braking system on modern road vehicles, the skill and judgement of the driver must ultimately be relied upon to ensure that the vehicle is driven safely. 8: Tyre Contact Patch. 8), which plays a major role in defining the tyre/road grip or adhesion of the tyre in use. Under radial and sideways loading the tyre acts as a spring, and the characteristics of the radial stiffness affect the size of the contact patch and the ride comfort of the vehicle.

If wheel lock does not occur, the braking force generated at each tyre/road interface (in the longitudinal direction) is determined by the specification of the brake on each wheel, as set out in Chapters 5 and 6. As discussed above, wheel lock will occur if the magnitude of the longitudinal brake force on any wheel exceeds the maximum that the tyre/road interface can sustain. 12), so it follows that for the maximum vehicle deceleration or rate of braking to Braking System Design for Passenger Cars and Light Vans 53 be achieved on any given road surface, all wheels must simultaneously approach the point of locking.

A friction pair basically follows Amontons’ laws of friction, but when braking duty increases and the temperatures generated at the friction interface increase significantly, Friction and Friction Materials 33 • • • • the coefficient of friction (m) will change. Most changes in m are related to temperature, and how much m changes depends on the specification of the friction material. The friction coefficient (m) of any friction material can only be assessed accurately by testing (see Chapter 9).
