    A Simplified Analysis of the Tire-Tread Contact Problem using Displacement Potential Based Finite-Difference Technique

    S Reaz Ahmed1, S K Deb Nath1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.44, No.1, pp. 35-64, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.044.035

    Abstract The paper presents a simplified analysis of stresses and deformations at critical sections of a tire-tread. Displacement potential formulation is used in conjunction with the finite-difference method to model the present contact problem. The solution of the problem is obtained for two limiting cases of the contact boundary - one allows the lateral slippage and the other conforms to the no-slip condition along the lateral direction. The influential effects of tire material and tread aspect-ratio are discussed. The reliability and accuracy of the solution is also discussed in light of comparison made with the usual computational approach. More >
