DEVELOPMENT OF URETHANE ROADWHEEL TIRES WITH EMPHASIS ON METHOD OF BONDING (FIRST SIX SAMPLES)
This project is a test of M113 roadwheels made with urethane tires. Various methods of bonding solid urethane tires to roadwheels for tracked vehicles were evaluated. Mechanical bonding through expanded metal welded to wheel rim looks promising and will be further evaluated through additional drum tests with urethane of different durometer hardness. 5298
