Paper Abstract

A method of non-destructively detecting internal anomalies or void areas in tires can be a valuable tool for tire structural analysis. Such a system has become commerically available. This system uses holographic interferometry in conjunction with vacuum stressing to non-destructively inspect tires for internal voids or anom alies. A holographic non-destructive testing (HNDT) system has been purchased by General Motors Proving Ground and has been utilized by the Tire and Wheel Engineering Laboratory for structural analysis of tires prior to, during, and after testing. The HNDT equipment is described and the process and utility of passenger car tire analysis explained.
