Development for an Aged Tire Durability Standard - Comparison of Stepped-Up Load and Steady State DOE Results 2008-01-1494
In response to the TREAD act of 2002, ASTM F09.30 Aged Tire Durability Task Group was formed with the objective of developing a scientifically valid, short duration, laboratory aged tire durability test which correlates to field behavior. The target end-of-test condition was belt edge separation (or related damage). Two strategies have been investigated, aged stepped-up load and steady state DOE. Results of the two strategies are compared and contrasted and a test condition from the steady state DOE has been identified as the preferred direction for further validation.
