Aquaplaning

Aquaplaning or hydroplaning is the process of making the tyres skip or float over water rather than moving through it and staying in contact with surface at high speed. Consequently, all traction control is lost and car continues to move in its direction prior to loss of its grip. Tyres are provided with deep – seated grooves which help water escape through them which why bald tyres are not safe in wet conditions. Wider tyres are usually aquaplane.

The major causes of this are: Motorcycles, Water depth factors and Vehicle sensitivity factors. For vehicles it can be reduced to some extent if we take Response and Recovery Time and Prevention by the driver into account and so is the case with aircrafts. It is of three types : reverted rubber, Viscous and Dynamic.Any aquaplaned tire has a tendency to reduce brake effectiveness and directional control. When confronted with the possibility of aquaplaning, drivers are advised to drive on grooved paths (if available). The speed should be as slow as possible consistent with safety. In case presence of water of is felt moderate should be applied and if no deceleration is detected, aquaplaning is suspected. The level should be raised and aerodynamic drag should be utilized to decelerate to point where the brakes can become effective. Proper braking techniques should be used.The brakes should be applied until a point just short of skid; the wheels should then be allowed to spin. Remember that in a crosswind, if aquaplaning should occur, the crosswind will cause the car to simultaneously move in wind’s direction as well as slide.
