Abstract : There are numerous publications about forces on tyres acting in or against travel direction, drawbar pull and rolling resistance, but only a few about lateral forces on steered tyres. A test equipment, which provided a wealth of information of lateral-and travel resistance of front wheels in recent years, has been further developed for testing implement tyres. This setup is mounted rigid on a tractor Unimog and provides measurements of longitudinal and lateral forces on tyre at steering angles from 0 deg to 30 deg with different load up to 1,3 t.
