Non-Pneumatic Tires, Hexagonal Honeycombs Spokes, Static, Explicit Dynamic


Non-Pneumatic Tires (NPT) have been using in several sector since the wide application and following with advantages of the simplicity of maintenance. In this study, engineering design of NPTs is investigated with several different honeycomb spoke under static and explicit dynamic loading. The component of NPT with a hexagonal honeycomb type consisting of a hub wheel, outer ring, spokes, and tread. The six model of NPT is denoted with variation of thickness of the tread (20 and 30 mm) and thickness of the flexible spokes (3, 5 and 7 mm). Based on the computer simulation results, the B1 type NPT has a good ability to accept loads with deformation is 21,539 mm and the stress is 287,69 MPa.
