1. Su, Chuang. Integrated Experimental Methods and Machine Learning for Tire Wear Prediction.

Degree: PhD, Mechanical Engineering, 2019, Virginia Tech

A major challenge in tire research, is tire wear modeling. There are too many factors affecting tire wear, and part of those factors are difficult to be accurately expressed in physics and math. The objective of this research is to develop a machine learning based rubber sample wear model, and find the correlation between sample wear and tire wear. To develop this model, accurate and diverse wear data is necessary. The Dynamic Friction Tester (DFT) was designed and built for this purpose. This test machine has made it possible to collect accurate rubber sample wear data which has been validated under different conditions. Wear tests under diverse test conditions were conducted, and the test data were used to train machine learned based wear models with different algorithms, such as Neural Networks and Support Vector Machines. With test-proved wear behavior classification as additional input, and feature selection, performance of the trained rubber sample wear model has been further improved. To correlate rubber sample wear and tire wear, a set of correlation functions were developed and proposed. By validating the correlation functions using tire wear test data collected on roads, this research contributes a fast and economical approach to predict tire wear.

2. Ramdasi, Surabhi Suhas. Enhancement of a Rolling Resistance Rig for Force and Moment Testing of Tires.

Degree: MS, Mechanical Engineering, 2016, Virginia Tech

Tire testing has been one of the important aspects of the tire industry because it helps identify the tire behavior which further helps in improving the design of tires. It also helps automotive manufacturers choose the best tire for their automobiles. Indoor tire testing helps in relating the data better because of greater repeatability of the testing setup as compared to outdoor testing. This study focusses on modifying a rolling resistance machine to make it capable of force and moment and cleat testing along with the standard rolling resistance test. Additionally, the design of a mechanical loading mechanism (used to apply normal force on the tire) in place of the previous one using dead weights is also discussed. This study also talks about the structural and vibrational finite element analysis of a tire testing machine. Since the machine was designed to conduct different tire tests, different structural requirements of the tire positioning mechanism pertaining to each test were taken into consideration, and the structure was analyzed for maximum forces and moments acting on the assembly. Cleat testing subjects the tire as well as the structure to an impulse force which calls for the vibrational analysis of the assembly to avoid the structure from resonating. The design was modified to get it easily manufactured and assembled. These design changes and the aspects taken into consideration have also been discussed.
