Abstract

A transducer is described which can directly measure the cord tension at any point in an arbitrarily loaded tire. Cord force data obtained at the crown and in the sidewall for a typical two-ply automobile tire are presented for: (1) the inflation problem, (2) the static deflection problem, and (3) the rolling tire. Agreement between theory and experiment is good for the inflation problem, which is the only case where a cord load formula exists to allow comparison.
