Abstract

The concept of rolling resistance force is replaced by that of energy dissipated in unit distance traveled. The energy loss per unit distance, which is a function of slip angle, inclination angle, wheel torque, and other variables, is shown to reach a minimum under driving conditions. The new formula is compared with those given by Gough and by the Society of Automotive Engineers.
