ON THE DYNAMIC RESPONSE OF ROLLING TIRES ACCORDING TO THIN SHELL APPROXIMATIONS

The response of the rolling tire is formulated in terms of the natural modes and frequencies of the non-contacting tire for contact loading due to rolling, braking, accelerating or cornering. The tire is viewed as an equivalent thin shell. Formulation is by way of the three-dimensional dynamic green function of this shell. As the application example, the response of the tire during pure rolling is evaluated. The critical rolling speed at which the tire develops its first large amplitude standing waves is calculated in a novel fashion, showing the relationship between the standing wave phenomenon and natural tire modes and frequencies. Findings underline the need for measuring or calculating higher order tire modes than those considered in what seems to be the present standard practice. /Author/TRRL/
