Tire pressure impact on structural durability tests results 2008-36-0041

During the Product Development Process, the experimental engineers try to acquire the most reliable data from Proving Grounds early on the development process, aiming to support CAE model correlation and in this way ensuring that the vehicle is capable of withstanding customer loads. Those data, from Proving Grounds, are correlated to the most severe customer's usage and public road conditions. The proposal of this paper is to analyze how tire pressure affects structural durability, since safety, performance and fuel economy were already discussed on other opportunities. Tire pressure is important because it's one variable where the customer can monitor and act and because TPMS (Tire Pressure Measurement System) is not available on most vehicles sold in the Brazilian Market,
