The modern tire is the most complex, composite product in mass production. Yet given its complexity and required performance, there is little information in the public domain regarding its development. This book provides an introduction to tire design, construction, and manufacturing in the context of materials technologies used today, along with future trends and disrupting technologies.
•Focuses on design and construction
•Discusses the relationship between materials and performance
•Reviews tire uniformity as a key differentiator among manufacturers
•Evaluates design and construction features versus performance
Written for engineers in the polymer, industrial, chemical, mechanical, and automotive industries, this book offers a comprehensive view of tire design, including materials selection, construction, manufacturing, quality control, and future trends.
