Abstract

Tire-ground interaction plays substantial role in determining vehicle kinetics and kinematics yet a clear understanding of such an interaction outputs is complex process. The present study aims at static analysis of tire parameters using both experimental and numerical based finite element method (FEM) solutions. To this end, tire cross section shape with different inflation pressures, vertical stiffness together with the footprint were measured using controlled apparatus and then are compared with the simulation results in order that the accuracy of the FE tire model in static condition can be validated. The 3D tire model was obtained by revolving the 2D axisymmetric tire model, and static stiffness and footprint were predicted using the 3D model. Inflation pressure analysis was presented by comparing the tire cross-section shape variation at different inflation pressures. The conclusions will serve future investigations as a concise knowledge source to develop improved tire models.
