Corrections to the proposal from the Russian Federation to elaborate on the concept of tyre deceleration (dω/dt) in the test technology.
18. The expert from the Russian Federation introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRB/2013/3, amended by GRB-57-01, proposing the use of a “Deceleration Calculator” software for the deceleration test method in the test procedure for measuring rolling resistance. He informed GRB about the variant of data processing in the rolling resistance deceleration test method basing on the dω/dt formula. He underlined that this variant was used as an alternative to the existing data processing stipulated in UN Regulation No. 117, not affecting the existing test methods, and that it fully matches ISO 28580 and the procedures of Annex 6 of UN Regulation No. 117. The “Deceleration calculator” is a mathematical tool providing high accuracy [σ < 0.001%; R2 > 0.999] of development in the experimental data. The concept dω/dt was incorporated into standard GOST R 52102.1 He also introduced GRB-57-25 to provide a background history on the development of legislation on rolling resistance and made a practical demonstration of the proposed “Calculator”.
19. GRB recommended that experts start using the proposed calculator and to provide comments at its September 2013 session. The expert from the Russian Federation was recommended to provide, in the meantime, further background information on the algorithms of the calculator and on both proposals (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRB/2013/3 and GRB-57-01), as well as demonstration at the next session of GRRF for an exchange of views.
