Abstract: This paper presents the development of a structural model for passenger car tyres, based on a three-dimensional flexible ring on an elastic foundation. The ring represents the belt and the elastic foundation represents the tyre sidewall. The tyre model, which is implemented as a finite element model, is valid below the first treadband axial bending mode and includes a definition of the wheel flexibility and air cavity. The eigenfrequencies predicted by the model are within 5% of the measured eigenfrequencies. The model is validated by comparing predicted with measured responses for both an unloaded and loaded tyre.
