Infrared Experiment on a Road Wheel During an FMVSS-109 Type Compliance Test

The work described in this report was performed to determine the relationship between an automobile tire's thermal performance and tire failure. This work was coordinated by the Transportation Systems Center (TSC), Electromechanical Branch as a part of the nondestructive Automobile Tire Testing Program sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Research Institute. The experiment was conducted at Ogden Technology, a compliance center testing retread tires in Long Island, New York. TSC designed the experiment and provided coordination, technical assistance, data analysis and evaluation during the experiment. The purpose of this report is to describe the instrumentation and the data collection techniques used rather than to cite results of the first experiments, although some preliminary thermal data proved to be interesting.
