Short TAT braking system - Optimized tyre design for improved brake cooling


This project will develop a new optimized interface between the wheel rim and the tyre with angled seat, which will improve the passive brake system cooling. This new profile in the common area wheel/tyre will facilitate the flowing for hot air into the ambient air. Consequently it will reduce the Turn Around Time (TAT).
