Improvement of the EU tyre labelling system for noise and rolling resistance - Project - MOST Wiedzy


Improvement of the EU tyre labelling system for noise and rolling resistance

The main objective of this project is to improve the EU Tyre Labelling procedure for rolling resistance and noise. Several investigations have shown a lack of representativeness of the given tyre label values and how the tyres behave on real roads. The ELANORE is a joint project between the Gdansk University of Technology and EKKOM in Poland and SINTEF in Norway. The project is organised in 5 Work Packages (WP): The objective of WP1 is to find out how representative the method, specified in the UN ECE Reg.117 is, compared to measurement results on real roads. The work will be done by testing tyres according to Reg.117 on the drum facilities and comparing the results with results of road tests. WP2 will study the representativeness of the test surface specified in the regulation in comparison to the performance of the tyres on real road surfaces. This will be done by a minor Round Robin Test on a few selected ISO test surfaces in Europe, using a test vehicle and a selection of the test tyres used in WP1 and tyre road measurements on Polish and Norwegian roads. WP3 will propose a practical method of rolling resistance measurements that correlates better with measurements on real roads. An optimal replica of a road surface for drum tests will be developed and an improved test procedure for tyre fuel efficiency labelling will be proposed. The objective of WP4 is to propose improved method of measuring tyre/road noise for labelling. This will be done by using a modernized CPX trailer both on ISO test tracks and on real roads in Norway and Poland and making drum measurements on replica road surfaces. The objective of WP5 is to estimate the impact on the environment of the proposed improved EU Tyre labelling procedures for rolling resistance and noise. Results of the project will be disseminated trough scientific articles, seminars and conferences as well as through thematic TV channels.
