Resistance that is made up of wheel friction, journal friction, and wind resistance. It is non recoverable.
This is a motion resisting effect on a vehicle on a flat road surface, consisting primarily of rolling and mechanical friction, but excluding air resistance.
The total frictional force that a tyre, a set of tyres or all the tyres on a vehicle is developing with the road.
The capacity of a tyre to contrast its natural "spinning" movement. The lower the rolling resistance, the more economic it is to roll the tyre as less energy will be required to "roll the tyre" with a resulting fuel saving.
The total frictional force that a tire, a set of tires or all the tires on a vehicle is developing with the road.
The horizontal force required to keep a vehicle in motion on a level surface, with the engine disconnected from the wheels and with no brake application; drag factor produced by friction within the vehicle and deformation of the tires and road surface.
The force required to keep a tire moving at a uniform speed. The lower the rolling resistance, the less energy needed to keep a tire moving.
The resistance of a tire to free rolling.
The amount of energy required to overcome the static mass of the tyre. This can be affected by design, load and pressure.
Resistance (at the tires) to motion caused by the type of road or earth surface; softer surfaces create greater resistance.
Rolling resistance, sometimes called rolling friction, is the resistance that occurs when an object (e.g a wheel or tire) rolls. It is much smaller than sliding friction except for special cases like ice skating. It is caused by the deformation of the wheel or tire or the deformation of the ground.
