Relationship Between Tire Pressure and Tractive Characteristic of Beach Cleaner

L. Ou-Yang, H. Wang and Y. Tang

Abstract:
This study proposes a mathematical model that uses the traction coefficient as an evaluation index for predicting the traction trafficability of a tire with low inflation pressure while rolling on a sandy beach. Employing sand taken from the sandy beach on the Huli Mountain in Xiamen and a 400/60-15.5R14 tire, we performed a tire sand trough orthogonal experiment using different tire pressures, loads and slip rates. The experimental results were found to be consistent with the predictions of the mathematical model and the optimum tire pressure was determined. The numerical and experimental results provide a reliable basis for designing a beach cleaner.
