BEAD CONTACT PRESSURE MEASUREMENTS AT THE TIRE-RIM INTERFACE

A method has been developed for measuring the normal contact pressure distribution at the interface between a tire and a rim using a miniature magnetostrictive transducer as the load sensor. Bead contact pressures were mapped at the interface between various radial tires and rims under static and dynamic loading conditions. Stress analysis studies of tires and wheels can now be conducted on a more rational basis than done in the past because the exact nature of the load distribution at the tire-rim interface is known for various tire loading conditions. /GMRL/
