Structural analysis


Different Sub-structures are easily identified in Radial tires

Each of these Sub-structures will play its own role when in use

They can be assimilated each to a different usual mechanical structure

Altogether they make a mechanical model of a Radial tire, the equations of which have been written and solved

As a result, the behavior of Radials is correctly simulated in a semi-quantitative way in most conditions

This particular analysis has proved efficient in explaining and improving performance

It proved particularly helpful at the design stage
