The speed when the tire is completely separated from the road is called the critical hydroplaning
CAUSES: Going too fast around a corner, hydroplaning
over standing water, driving over ice or braking too hard.
The biggest danger during a landing on contaminated runways is hydroplaning
(see sidebar above), but pilots continue to stack the deck to their disadvantage.
may or may not have been avoided; however, had we asked for the runway conditions on the approach, we could have determined whether to take a short-field arrestment.
cars, flooded basements, and sometimes--as in the case of Europe last summer--staggering economic losses.
The aggressive "peak & valley" profile provides traction and prevents hydroplaning
even when wet.
The most serious type of skidding, hydroplaning
, develops when speed is high (generally above 50 mph, although this can vary) and the running surface so wet that the wheels ride above the surface on a film of water or even steam if the frictional heat of a skidding tire has vaporized the film.
Give yourself plenty of time to brake and do so gently in order to avoid hydroplaning
The tire is engineered with Pulse Groove Technology that improves water evacuation and increases resistance to hydroplaning
It is well known that hydroplaning
(or aquaplaning) is the movement of an object on the surface of water when the object remains on the surface only due to the velocity head of water, i.
The cause of the accident was hydroplaning
u the result of a failure to reduce the speed of the vehicle, he said.
Since footprint pressure is closely related to hydroplaning
resistance, lower aspect ratio tire hydroplaning
resistance is not as high as that of high aspect ratio tires.
