Design of a wheel rig for studded tire wear and aerosol studies

University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

Abstract: Studded tires are widely used in Nordic areas like Sweden for its good road-gripping performance on icy roads. However, the pavement wear and aerosol caused by studded tires become big concerns considering the usage of studded tires. Studies are carried to quantify the wear and aerosol generated during the process. Among the existing test rigs, most of them which includes a full wheel as specimen have relatively large size. This thesis aims on designing a full wheel testrig with small scale which can fit in a common lab room and be easy to operate.
