Based on the results of experimental and numerical analyses, the effect of rotation on the tire dynamic behavior is investigated. The main goal of this study is to investigate the process of accurately assessing and predicting the overall road induced vibrations and noise of a rotating tire. The presented work is performed in the framework of the European industry-academia project TIRE-DYN, with partners Goodyear, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and LMS International. The effect of rotation on the tire dynamic behavior is quantified for different operating conditions of the tire, such as load and rotation speed. Through combined experimental and numerical analyses, the phenomena accounting for the observed rotation influence are described.
