From Perceptions of Vehicle Disturbance to Corrective Adjustments of Tires 770868

Disturbances transmitted to the occupants of vehicles often involve tires in their formation or transmission. Tire engineers attempting to reduce disturbances in specific vehicles have two courses of action; alter the tire design according to insight or whim until subjective testing indicates improvements; or analyze the chain of relationships from sensory impression through the tire-vehicle system to internal tire design.
This paper describes a “chain-of-relationships” procedure using sensory comparison techniques for identifying pertinent physical stimuli, and an approach to system modeling that best identifies structural tire properties.
