CenTiRe: 2022 Tire Society Conference Articles

2 of our CenTiRe funded projects are planned to be presented at the 2022 Tire Society Conference next month.  The projects are:

  •  TEST-2021-C13-3:  Automated Vibration Mode Shape Characterization of Radial Tire using Zernike Moments and Flattening, Junhyeon Seo Virginia Polytechnic Institute
  •  SUST-2020-D5-8:  Enhanced Crystallinity of Recycled PET Materials, Gavan Lienhart University of Akron

Both of these projects' draft presentations have been previously submitted for IAB content review and we fully expect to gain approval prior to the conference.  

Like CenTiRe, the Tire Society is recognized as a leading membership organization for tire science and research, engineering, technology and innovation.  CenTiRe is proud to partner with the Tire Society in furthering tire innovation, and we encourage our industry members to participate in the 2022 Tire Society conference, hosted by the University of Akron,  on September 12 & 13.   I've attached a copy of the 2022 conference program, and additional information on event registration be found here:
