Mrinmoy MondalMrinmoy is currently working as Deputy Manager at Hari Shankar Singhania Elastomer and Tyre Research Institute (HASETRI), in Rubber & Tire simulation field. He started his career with HASETRI in 2017. Completed B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from WBUT and M.Tech in Rubber Technology from IIT Kharagpur. Particularly worked on tyres' structural, durability and thermal simulation.
Prediction of new tyre profile using combined shaping and curing simulation
The precise shape of the new tyre is imperative to all subsequent analysis. The tyre owes its shape to vulcanization, where all the components undergo high deformation before curing rendering it permanent. However, even after its removal from the mould, the tyre experiences residual mechanical and thermal stresses from reinforcements and other rubber components. The current work simulates the stage-wise deformation and the effect of stresses developed during the process.
