Research output: Contribution to conference (unpublished)Abstract


Using piezoelectric transducers to measure interlayer tire strain is a promising technology providing it is responsive at 10s of kHz sampling rate range, which is essential to study tire behaviour under different loading and driving conditions, and to calculate tire strain by utilising mathematical integration. These strain values can be used to validate FE tire models. Tire driving conditions can be found from the tire strain measurements by positioning the piezoelectric sensors at different locations across the interlayer tire cross-section, such as measuring longitudinal strain, to find tracking and braking forces, and lateral strain to determine slip angles.
