Abstract

Design procedures based on sound mechanical principles have become a necessity to meet the ever‐increasing demands of performance placed upon the tire of today. This discussion gives an overview of the design process and calculations employed in developing the modern tire: performance and sizing, envelope shape as a function of construction, structural stress, design of the tire skin, and construction of the “green” tire.
