The application of sand particles is a common method to improve the friction of aircraft tires on snow or ice covered runways. Hence, an understanding of the prevailing rubber-ice and sand-ice friction mechanisms is of practical interest. Rubber-ice and sand-ice friction measurements were made with a British Pendulum Tester at temperatures between ―22 and 0°C and the effect of loose snow contamination on top of the ice was investigated. The results (the response of the instrument) were… CONTINUE READING
