thread815-490359: Potential Disaster, 5G and Aircraft
"It's different to that.
When you to that one you get rolls of rubber and tears in the tyre groves.
And for it to happed you need to have the weight on the ground and braking hard. The whole plane is shuddering and you have to work the rudder to keep in a straight line because the braking action is constantly changing.
This only occurs with a silky smooth wheels kissing the runway on water. The wheels won't be turning yet so no braking and the weight of the aircraft is still on the wings.
The rubber hydroplane causes significant reduction in tyre life. This just about more than normal wear.
Must admit if there are any tyre engineers looking at this I would love to know more. Tyres are one of these things people don't think about but I think they are an amazing bit of engineering.
Rather than think climate change and the corona virus as science, think of it as the wrath of God. Feel any better?
