Q.4.

Determine complete state of stress using one layer theory under the centerline of a tire ,
having a 50,000 lb load120 psi tire pressure. Use the following depth to tire ratios: 0, 0.5, 1,2 ,
2.5. Show a change in different types of stresses with to depth to tire ratio by plotting graphs.
Solution
Tire pressure (q) = 120psi
Total load = 50,000lb
