VARIATIONS IN TIRE HYSTERETIC LOSSES DUE TO TIRE DESIGN

The technique of analyzing energy losses of tires that have reached a state of thermal equilibrium has been applied to cross-ply and radial-ply passenger car tires and cross-ply truck tires. The derived formulations relating the tire energy losses to the viscoelastic properties of the tire components show the dependence of these losses on tire size and construction. The analysis was carried out by systematically varying tire tread compounds and operating parameters. This investigation of the energy losses experienced by tires operating in a state of thermal equilibrium has enalbled the losses due to the various stress-strain deformations to be characterized. In particular, the losses due to the strain deformation have been correlated with two mechanisms, which are outlined. /DOT/
