Tire Experiments on Static Adhesor for Obtaining the Radial Stiffness Value
The paper deals with static experiments of tires on a test machine for tires – static adhesor. The radial stiffness value of tires is obtained from the radial deformation characteristics from experiments on static adhesor. The new formula for radial stiffness value is described in the paper. This formula takes into account more real operating conditions during the loading of tires. The paper describes static experiment of selected tire on static adhesor and its results. We have compared three different tires with different radius and profile numbers. Knowledge about stiffness and information from tire experiments is necessary for the verification analyses between experiment data and computational results from computational modeling by Finite Element Method.
