Non-Pneumatic Tyre (NPT) as the name suggests is a type of tyre that doesn't use air to support the load. Even though tyres made out of solid rubber exists, they don't have enough compliance and will not provide a supple ride if used in normal vehicles. The NPT discussed here consists of mainly three parts. A rigid hub, Deformable spokes that support vertical load, Reinforced shear band and tread made out of rubber which comes into contact with the surface. The properties of NPT like contact pressure, rolling resistance and load carrying capacity can be varied by altering the dimensions or materials used to manufacture NPT. Several researches are being carried out all over the globe to make NPT an alternative to the conventional pneumatic tyre. This paper consolidates an overview of the research works that were carried out to develop and improve NPT. © 2017 Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
