STUDY ON STATIC ANALYSIS OF AIRLESS TYRE

Airless tyres or Non-pneumatic tyres is introduced with a replacement of poly- composite materials in place of air in a definite structure. The construction and material study of these tyres is done by comparing it with pneumatic tyres. A brief structural study on spokes of airless tyres is done and is related with rolling resistance and fuel efficiency. Airless tyres are similar to pneumatic tyres in that they carry significant loads at large deformations but are quite different in that they carry these loads without the benefit of inflation pressure. Whereas all pneumatic tyres of a given size, inflated to a particular pressure, will have nearly identical vertical stiffness and ground contact pressure, an airless tyre has it’s stiffness and contact pressure governed by a host of geometric and material parparameters.
