Title: An Investigation into the sources of vehicle tire noise
Author: Paoff, John
Abstract: Noise produced by a rolling tire on pavement has plagued automakers for years due to its complexity. Tire noise is dependent on many things such as tire material, tire construction, road surface texture, etc. In this investigation, an acoustical approach to modeling tire noise is presented. Based on the mechanics of a rotating tire, acoustical models can be developed. This, along with some acoustical analysis, leads to mathematical models that one can utilize in order to predict the noise that the tire will produce. These models will provide a good basis and starting point for reduction of tire noise and further modeling of tire noise.
