We have demonstrated that the X-ray Micro-CT (Computed Tomography – 3D) method can be used to progressively assess damage/flaw presence and progression in SBR-based (styrene butadiene rubber) tire rubber materials. Our experimental results reveal that progression of flaws due to cyclic (fatigue) loading may not occur at a fast rate until a catastrophic failure occurs in the tire material.
