The Dynamic Stiffness of a Pneumatic Tire Model 650491

The problem of the rotating cylindrical shell under the action of a stationary point load is treated in detail as a means of approximating the action of a tire while rolling. Comparison is made between calculated and measured load deflection curves, using a model very similar to the postulated cylindrical shell. There is reasonable correlation between such dynamic load deflection characteristics as predicted from the model and obtained experimentally, so that some support is lent to the eventual application of this model as an analog for real pneumatic tire studies.
