The adhesive friction of a wheel on a rail, a rope on a pulley, or the like; as, the car is stuck in the snow because it can;t get any traction.
In the context of this book the concept of achieving grip between the wheels and the ground without slip, skid or sinkage.
The UTQG traction rating is designed to help consumers compare the wet-road braking performance of a tire. Government guidelines specify the test conditions for testing traction on asphalt and concrete. All tests involve braking in a straight line. None of the tests measure traction while turning, resistance to hydroplaning, traction on snow or ice, dry road traction or any other type of "traction".
The resistance to slippage between the tire tread and the road surface, which is affected by conditions such as moisture on the road surface, and by tire tread pattern and rubber compound.
the friction between a body and the surface on which it moves (as between an automobile tire and the road)
The friction between the tires and the road surface; the amount of grip provided. Traction grades range from AA, A, B, C, with AA being the highest attainable grade.
The ability of a tire to grip the road surface.
the "grip" of your shoes on the floor or ground
The amount of forward thrust that a wheel can provide before it slips. It is the product of the weight bearing down on the wheel (generally 25 per cent of the vehicle weight on a level road) and the coefficient of friction, which depends on the nature of the tyre and the surface of the road. Traction helps determine the steepest road a vehicle can climb.
The ability of the rear tyres to grip the track surface and cause the car to accelerate.
The degree to which a car is able to transfer its power onto the track surface for forward progress.
The power to grip or hold to a surface while moving without slipping.
Friction between a car's tires and the road surface. Traction allows the wheels/tires to propel a car forward without the wheels spinning in place. In CO2 racing, the wheels do not propel the vehicle, so increasing traction is not necessary.
A different name for grip.
The frictional force developed by the tires against the pavement.
A body's friction on a surface such as a vehicle tire on a roadway.
Friction of a body on a surface while moving.
The amount of grip and surface stability that can be provided by a surface. A loose, eroded surface will provide poor traction.
Also known as grip, this refers to the friction between the tires and the road.
refers to the friction between a drive member and the surface it moves upon, where the friction is used to provide motion.
