Abstract: This paper summarises the results of a study in which the maximum vertical contact stressess of the one third scale test tyres of the Model Mobile Load Simulator (MMLS3) were compared with those measured for three types of full-scale test tyres of the Heavy Vehicle Simulator (HVS). The problem that was addressed in this study was to quantify the differences, if any, between the tyre contact stresses of the one third scale test tyres of the MMLS3 and those of the full-scale test tyres on the HVS. The study represents the most comprehensive investigation of the contact stresses under the MMLS3 tyres. Earlier studies of vertical contact stresses under MMLS3 test tyres were reported by Sime and Ashmore (1999), Epps-Martin, et al (2002) and Doupal et al (2002)
