Optimal Design of Tire Sidewall Contours for Improving Maneuverability and Durability

조정성과 내구성 향상을 위한 타이어 측벽형상 최적설계

  • Published : 2001.10.01


Automobile maneuverability and tire durability are significantly influenced by the sidewall tire contour. In order to improve these tire performances, it is very important far one to determine a sidewall contour producing the ideal tension and strain-energy distributions. However, these requirements can nut be simultaneously achieved by conventional non-interactive multi-objective optimization methods based on mathematical programming, because these exhibit the conflicting behavior each other, with respect lo the sidewall contour. Therefore, we execute the tire contour optimization fur improving the maneuverability and the tire durability using satisficing trade-off method.
