ABSTRACT
To investigate static tire enveloping characteristics, a three dimensional (3-D) finite element model is proposed. The vertical stiffness of the tire is studied on a flat surface with and without cleat. Tire rubber materials and cord layers are represented independently using
Key Words: Tire, Finite element model, Enveloping characteristics, Cleat
