  • This study addresses an engineered solution for implementing tire component material properties characterized under multiple operating states for application to tire structure borne vibration performance prediction using finite element methods (FEM). The capability to include component information is useful for design tuning. In addition to material densities, nonlinear material properties and nonlinear geometry are used to establish a tire static or steady state base condition. About the base condition, linear material properties are used to determine the vibratory properties for subsequent vibration performance simulations. Testing and analysis techniques are used to measure and characterize material storage and loss moduli at multiple base and vibratory strain conditions. The FEM technique is validated on single elastomeric compounds by correlating measured and predicted frequency response functions (FRF’s). The FEM technique is then validated on a full tire model with many compounds by correlating measured and predicted FRF’s.
