Tire abrasion measurement vehicle test method
Tire wear is caused by the friction process between tires and the road surface. This is unintentionally releasing microplastics to the environment. The first step to monitor and limit those particle emissions is to develop and agree on a test procedure to measure the tire abrasion rate. This presentation concerns a proposal for an accelerated vehicle test method in the proving ground environment.
