Title: The rolling friction of several airplane wheels and tires and the effects of rolling friction on take-off

Comment: Interesting measurements of the variations of rolling coefficient according to the nature of the track (concrete, firm turf, soft turf), the type of wheels (standard, low pressure, very low pressure), the differences in inflation pressure, the plain or ball bearings
