A shell model for tyre belt vibrations

Lecomte, Christophe, Graham, W.R. and Dale, M. (2010) A shell model for tyre belt vibrations Journal of Sound and Vibration, 329, (10), pp. 1717-1742. (doi:10.1016/j.jsv.2009.11.022).

We present a new formulation for the prediction of tyre belt vibrations in the frequency range 0–500 Hz. Our representation includes the effects of belt width, curvature and anisotropy, and also explicitly models the tyre sidewalls. Many of the associated numerical parameters are fixed by physical considerations; the remainder require empirical input. A systematic and general approach to this problem is developed, and illustrated for the specific example of a Goodyear Wrangler tyre. The resulting predictions for the radial response to radial forcing show good correspondence with experiment up to 300 Hz, and satisfactory agreement up to 1 kHz
