I am trying to work out how much force is generated when a tyre fails at a certain pressure. The tyre will be inside an OSHA section 1910.177 compliant tyre cage.

What calculation would be used to solve the following?:

The tyre size is 35 x 11.5-17 with a rated inflation of 255 psi.

Maximum supply available to the tyre is 300 psi.

I need to know what force/shockwave/energy is released if the tyre were to fail inside the cage.

Worst case scenario is the tyre sidewall splits with all stored pressure/energy being released in one direction.

Thanks for your time.
