While the tire explodes because of several reasons during driving, the wheel, carrying weight of vehicle and provides taking distance, cannot perform its function. The tire loses its mechanical properties and the interaction with the ground (terramechanical properties) deteriorates and the transmission function does not work properly and tire cannot track the vehicle and it cannot complete its task.
After losing rigidity, tire touches the wheel uncontrollably and excessive friction comes out. As a result, the tire deforms and the heat occurs. After tire deformation, the wheel, which provides directing and transmitting torque, cannot function as designed and the vehicle is out of control. The vehicle that has lost control can cause significant danger and the vehicle is in danger of completing its mission.
In order to prevent this danger and complete the task, it is necessary to perform the wheel function for a certain period of time after the tire explodes. At this point, "RUNFLAT", the sub-system installed between the rim and the tire, provides the function of the wheel.
Aksa Run Flat Systems will participate EUROSATORY 2020 fair in Paris.
