Abstract : The pneumatic tire has been an integral part of transportation almost since its inception, yet it remains a product whose characteristics are not easily predictable or comprehensible by conventional engineering techniques. This thesis is an attempt to provide a numerical model for predicting the ground contact pressure pattern between an aircraft tire and road under static condition.
