A Method for Experimental Collection of Global Material Data for Tyres
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2001
For the modelling of the dynamic behaviour of tyres material data are required. Depending on the character of the model these will have different quality. Modelling with global structures such as beams or plates, representative data for the global bending stiffness, global mass etc. are needed. These data do not represent the details of the tyre structure but the combined properties of the structure. Therefore it is not possible to cut out samples of the tyre and determine the global material properties by measurements on these samples. Consequently it is necessary to estimate the material parameter by measurements carried out on the complete tyre. Results from such measurements will be related to the model used for the tyre (e.g. ring model, orthotropic plate, etc.). The material data obtained in such way are consequently a function of both the tyre structure and the model, which is used to update the data. A method for experimental collection of global material data for tyres has been developed. This method is based on the experimental characterisation of tyres by driving point and transfer mobilities and the use of the orthotropic plate tyre model for updating the material data.
