The research of fourteen countries is represented in this compilation of current and planned research outside the U.S. in tire noise research and tire noise control technology including both passenger car tires and truck tires. Topics covered include mechanisms of tire noise generation, on-the-road and laboratory measurement methods, influence of tire variables (tread type, aspect ratio, material, bias vs. radial, tread wear, sidewall stiffness), operating variables (pressure, temperature, speed, load) road surface variables (texture depth, surface material, wet vs. dry, grooving), tire screens, studded tires, tradeoffs with other design variables such as safety (traction, skid resistance), and recommendations for further research. Included are 104 references.
