Prediction Of Radial Truck Tire Durability Through Steady State Fea Simulation
Abstract- This work presents an FEA approach for prediction of radial truck tire durability. Durability is one of the most
important and critical design criteria for truck tires. In this work critical failure locations of a radial truck tire while running
condition, have been enlighten through steady state simulation. Different durability parameters for different locations of tire,
which can be used to correlate with durability of truck tire, have been shown. Truck tire belongs to the category of vehicles
which are usually under overloading conditions. The paper shows the effect of overloading conditions on tire durability.
