(2003) Contact Pressure Distribution of All-Terrain Crane Tyres: November 2003 report. National Road Transport Commission, Melbourne.


The Engineering Research and Consultancy Centre (ERCC) at the Victoria University of Technology undertook to evaluate the effects of inflation pressure on the contact pressure distribution of various pneumatic All-terrain crane tyres. The measurements were carried out on the 21st March 2002 and 30th April 2003 at Conmor Cranes in Braeside, Victoria. The primary aim of the investigation was to detect any significant differences in contact pressure pattern produced by 16 and 20.5-inch tyres at various inflation pressures. This report contains a description of the equipment and procedures used along with outcomes and results of tests.
