    Abstract

    The basic challenge facing tire cord engineers is to develop a better understanding of the relationships between tire cord properties and tire performance. This paper traces the historical development of tire cords; analyzes forecasts of tire cord consumption; discusses past and present market and societal goals; notes the complexities of relating tire cord properties to tire performance; discusses the optimization of tire cord tensile strength to burst and bruise a tire; and notes the importance of tire cord dynamic properties to power loss in tires.

    Keywords:

    tire cord historical development, tire cord properties and performance, tire cord market forecasts, tire bruise, tire burst, tire power loss, cotton, rayon, nylon, glass, polyester, steel, aramid, vinal
