Final Report - TYROSAFE (Tyre and road surface optimisation for skid resistance and further effects)

Project ID: 217920
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT


This is the final report for the TYROSAFE project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Its main aim was to raise awareness, coordinate and prepare for European harmonisation and to optimise the assessment and management of essential tyre / road interaction parameters, in order to increase safety and support greening of European road transport.

The report covers some background information about the project and its main objectives and goes on with the work performed and the results achieved in the five Work packages (WPs) that the project consists of. The dissemination activities, as well as the exploitation of results are stated. The report concludes with the impact of the project.

The results of the project include a thorough evaluation of the role of the key road surface parameters skid resistance, rolling resistance and noise emission of road surfaces in the context of the European road transport system including their interdependencies and the interaction with the climate.
