The dissipated energy from periodic deformation is regarded as the main reason for heat generation and temperature rise inside the tire domain. However, the mechanical behavior of rubber parts is highly temperature dependent. In most performed investigations, the influence of thermal effects on stress/ deformation fields of pneumatic tires is ignored and just temperature distribution is considered. Hence in this study, using a series of 2D and 3D finite element models, a robust and efficient numerical study is presented for thermo-mechanical analysis of pneumatic tires specially 115/60R13 radial tire. Finally, the effects of loading condition s and ambient temperature on the thermo-mechanical properties of tire are investigated in detail. Comparing the obtained results with the available results in literature, shows a good agreement of the presented studies with related published works.

The natural frequencies and mode shapes of pneumatic tires are predicted using a geometrically accurate, three-dimensional finite element modeling. Tire rubber materials and cord layers are represented independently using “shell element” available in COSMOS. The effects of some physical parameters such as the inflation pressure tread pattern, thickness of belts and ply angles to the natural frequencies of tires are investigated. By imposing equivalent centrifugal forces, the effect of translational speed on vibrating behavior of the tire is also studied in this work. Comparisons of numerical and experimental results are given to show the validity of the proposed model.

The viscoelastic effect of rubber material on creation of rolling resistance is responsible for 10-33% dissipation of supplied power at the tire/road interaction surface. So, evaluating this kind of loss is very essential in any analysis concerned with energy saving. The transient dynamic analysis for including the rolling effects of the tire requires long CPU time and the obtained results are prone to considerable numerical oscillations. By adding the equivalent loads to static interaction of tire with the road, an efficient 3D FE analysis is presented for evaluating the dissipated energy of a rolling tire. The results closely match the related experimental and numerical investigations.

Evaluating the thermal effects and variations in temperature of rolling pneumatic tires, is a very important factor in safe performance of the vehicles. Normally, the transient thermal investigation of rolling tires is performed by tire test rigs. However, experimental analysis is a very time and cost consuming process and because of technical limitations, the tests cannot be carried out in most severe conditions. In this work, a validated finite element model is proposed for transient thermal investigation of rolling pneumatic tires. Compared with the experimental tests, the current study gives satisfactory results for temperature distribution of the tire.
