Non-exhaust emissions from on-road vehicles are gaining increasingly public attention. Besides the disk brake also the tires represents a significant source of abrasion particles of road traffic. The tyre tread surface wears out due to frictional contact with the road surface. To this effect, a new measurement facility, unique in its kind, was designed and developed at the Technische Unversität Ilmenau to assess tyre particulate emissions.
