Title: Central Tire Inflation: Demonstration Tests in the South

Author: Rummer, R.B.; Ashmore, C.; Sirois, D.L.; Rawlins, C.L.;

Date: 1990

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. SO-78. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Dept of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 11 p.

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Tests of prototype Central Tire Inflation (CT11 systems were conducted to quantify CT1 performance, road wear, and truck vibration. The CT1 systems were tested in both experimental and operational settings. Changes in the road surface that occurred during the tests could not be statistically attributed to reduced tire pressure. Vibration at the seat base, however, was significantly affected by tire pressure. In the operational tests, reduced tire pressure was associated with higher travel speeds. The implications of these findings for log transportation are discussed.
