Fact sheet “Less Fuel Consumption”
05 November 2020
The topic of the second fact sheet is “Less Fuel Consumption”.
Fuel consumption is not only influenced by the vehicle (type of engine, aerodynamic profile, tyres,…) but also by the pavement it is driving on. The factors related to the surface of the pavement are the evenness, the surface texture and the deflection.
While texture and evenness can be made the same for asphalt and concrete roads, this is not the case for deflection.
