Parametric Analyses of Pneumatic Tires Update-Samples of Engineering Problems and Solutions in Off-Road Locomotion 850536

The paper is in a sense, a sequel to the paper published by the Society of Automotive Engineers, in 1974.It reports corrections, refinements, validation and extension of bevameter methods in parametric analyses of pneumatic tire - soils systems.Considerations of tire detailed dimensions, form, internal structure, configuration (duals, singles), tread design, inflation pressure, load and cost are discussed in the realm of off-road machinery.Predictability of vehicle performances is illustrated in various soils by numerical examples and test results. Mineral and organic soils and snow are considered.The work has been based to a large extent on recent studies performed by the author for Canadian and Italian National Research Councils.
