Two radial-interradial spring tire models are developed to predict vertical and drag forces produced by a tire as it rolls over an obstacle. Interradial springs are used to interconnect radial linear or quadratic springs to make each tire element’s deflection dependent upon its adjacent element’s deflections. Forces predicted by these two models are compared with a previously developed quadratic radial spring tire model and test data. The newly developed quadratic radial-linear interradial spring tire model predicts vertical and drag forces that are in close agreement with the test data.
