Analysis of Airless Tyre for Static Forces

Prajwal chatra, Seetharama K S


In this work, models of air-less tire is constructs to simulate the loading condition. Air-less tire, air-tire are modelled by AUTODESK modelling software. Model imported from AUTODESK to ANSYS to simulate the static compressive loading condition. Both were analyzed through Non-Linear material model. A uniformly distributed center load acting at the center of tyre rim acting downwards. The tire is made by rubber of the hyper-elastic property. Both tires are analyzed by the FEA. Comparison is done between airless and air tyre for deflection and stress parameter.
