The dynamic aquaplaning of pneumatic tyres with diameters ranging from 9 to 17 inches, was investigated on a rolling road test apparatus using a 1/4 inch deep water layer laid onto the ground belt at matching speed. The aquaplaning speed was found to be related to the average ground contact pressure, higher contact pressures giving higher aquaplaning speeds. The tyre inflation pressure was the main component of the ground contact pressure but there were contributions by the tyre stiffness and centrifugal effects due to tyre rotation.
