Vibration Analysis of Tire Circumferential Mode Under Loaded Axle 2013-01-1909
Road noise is one of the main vehicle interior noises. To minimize this, it is necessary to reveal the vibration characteristics of a rolling tire. Tire vibration has complex behavior due to tire contact with the road and rolling. In an earlier study, we clarified the effect of contact patch restriction for tire vibration characteristics in the non-rolling condition using the tire dynamical model. However, mode shapes were identified with circumferential wave number. Therefore, it is difficult to clarify the effect for tire vibration in the contact and rolling condition. In this paper, we will apply the receptance method, which is used as an analysis of the rotating disc and gear pair for the tire model toward the tire vibration analysis in the contact and rolling condition. Furthermore, the validity of the approach using this method will be verified from comparison with the result of an earlier study.
