    Abstract

    This paper gives a survey of the different testing methods for the evaluation of the mechanical properties of steel cord used as tire reinforcement material.

    The paper will deal with the latest findings relative to tension tests, compression tests, rotaflex test, dynamic compression tests, fretting simulation tests, and rubber penetration tests.

    The steel cord properties measured in those tests will be discussed in relation to tire performance, including steel radial passenger car tires, truck and bus tires, and off-the-road tires. The principal steel cord properties will be illustrated.
