To be held concurrently with the expo on 19 - 20 February 2018.
This course covers the computer modelling of tyres within a full vehicle system. It is aimed at engineers and researchers working in both industry and academia. The subject matter will be of primary interest to vehicle dynamicists, for whom the tyre is the primary force and moment generation element on the vehicle. Tyres are not especially complex but are deeply counter-intuitive; practitioners require an understanding of tyre behaviour and the range & capability of existing models in order to generate full system models to predict the dynamic performance of a vehicle – both for comfort and for active safety.
The course will start with an overview of the force and moment characteristics generated in the tyre contact patch, progress through the way in which these are captured through laboratory testing and complete with the empirical models for usefully accurate representation. Aircraft tyre models will also be covered, as will the development of physical tyre models to predict the interaction of the tyre with road obstacles and terrain for durability analysis.
