Determination of adhesion potential using the IKH slip measuring system
by H. Grunberg, W.D. Hahn
International Journal of Heavy Vehicle Systems (IJHVS), Vol. 3, No. 1/2/3/4, 1996

Abstract: The Institute for Automotive Engineering at the University of Hanover has designed and built a high-precision slip measuring system. Using this system, it was possible to prove that the longitudinal stiffness of a tyre decreases under the influence of low longitudinal forces on slippery roads. This phenomenon could be used to determine the actual adhesion potential (Dieckmann, 1991, 1992, 1993).
