Traction (engineering)

Traction (Latin trahere, drag ',' pull ') refers to its power-driven movement for all kinds of vehicles. In the physical sense, it is a form of tensile force which is converted into rotation by overcoming a rolling resistance to the movement of loads. A process of calculating movement factor is the traction coefficient of a physical size, a ratio of the forces used to move and the moving load. The achievement of a low traction coefficient is important for concerned maintenance and manufacturing industry of vehicles and accessories, as well as for transport companies alike.
