Chapter Three

Nonsteady-State Tire Behavior

Chapter 3 discusses first-order transient behavior of tires in lateral and longitudinal directions, with examples such as the shimmy phenomenon and the tire under repetitive braking. The next step in dynamic behavior is accounting for belt vibrations, modeled by the rigid ring tire model. This model and the dynamic intermediate frequency tire performance are discussed, but are restricted to in-plane behavior (impact of road disturbances), with a special emphasis on tire enveloping characteristics.
