Automobile Tire Hydroplaning (1960's)

Excellent video about tire hydroplaning which is just as applicable today as when it was made.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration

Automobile Tire Hydroplaning - AVA12925VNB1

The video shows how and why automobile tires lose contact with wet pavements and the relationship between speed, tire wear, and water depth. The dangers of hydroplaning are emphasized. The video was produced jointly with the Bureau of Public Roads.
