Description / Abstract:

ESDU 16008 is a general introduction to the ESDU Items that address the forces acting between aircraft tyres and paved runways. The methods can be used to predict the forces and conditions arising from the motion of tyres with and without wheel braking on runways that are dry, wet or covered by water, slush, snow or ice. Single and multi-wheel configurations are considered. The solutions set out in the ESDU Items are derived from and matched to experimental data. The methods are algebraic and so there is no reliance on the availability of finite element modelling or computational fluid dynamic models.
