As a former fluidics/fluid control engineer/specialist I love these types of articles. Having published technical papers, it still bugs me people use $2.00 words when a $.25 word would work equally well in a technical analysis.
I would love to see the test videos they refer to. I also wonder how long ti will take for new design strategies to come out of this research.

^ Thank you. I'm here all week. 😅

@packout - Thank you for those posts! :) The little one's science-fair project a couple of years ago was about car tires and hydroplaning...she won an award from the SAE and a tiny little scholarship for it (it's nowhere near the level of the science in what you'd brought forward for us to see here of-course!), and she's fascinated by this new stuff.

@TSiWRX please confirm you would like your account deleted next week? 🤪
Kidding of course. We know you’ll still be here helping make this the best car forum!

I don’t always hydroplane, but when I do I try to think of my wheels more like rudders than wheels. This doesn’t however work on slicks, ie bald tires as well.

@packout the links in your initial post for mechanisms of wet braking and Michelin test track aren’t working. Let me know if you find a working link and need it updated

thanks for that heads up. I do not know why the links didn't take the first time but they work now.

I don't always get my accounts deleted, but when I do, I am sure have called to ask for my vehicle's Extended Warranty! 😅

Random number dialing does that... ;) The only way to not get those calls is to not have a phone. That's not exactly a practical thing, although I suspect that some folks wouldn't mind it for sure!

They can even mask their true # when they call, I've had caller ID identify the spam call as coming from my own home phone (an obvious tipoff it's a spam call)!!
But the worst one I ever had,a few years ago I'd get repeated calls from a window washing service that if you let the call play out on your answering machine, it would go on for about 9 1/2 minutes!!

Spoofing CID is the rule rather than the exception for robo-dialers. There's a method that can detect it at the carrier level, but until all carriers have implemented it, its use isn't going to be very effective. Most of the robo calls are also generated as IP (Internet Protocol) calls, too.

They usually call me from the same area code + exchange. Recently, though, they started calling from my wife’s area code + exchange. Next level creepy...

did someone mention hydroplaning somewhere in this thread?
