Tire Modelling and its Application in Tire and Vehicle Development

To be held on Monday 4 - Wednesday 6 March 2019.

€1,425 plus German VAT for the three-day course.

The Tire Modelling and its Application in Tire and Vehicle Development course will be held at Tire Technology Expo 2019 in Hannover, Germany. The three-day tire modelling course will run from 4-6 March 2019.


This year we are extending the course to three days with additional speakers joining our experienced team of presenters from both academia and industry. The course covers the computer modelling of tires within a full vehicle system and explains the use of models in a simulation environment. It is aimed at engineers and researchers working in industry and academia. The subject matter will be of primary interest to vehicle dynamicists, for whom the tire is the primary force and moment generation element on the vehicle. Tires are not particularly complex but are deeply counterintuitive; practitioners require an understanding of tire behaviour and the range and 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 tire contact patch. It will progress through the way in which these characteristics are captured through laboratory testing, and will complete with the empirical models for usefully accurate representation. Aircraft tire models will also be covered, as will the development of physical tire models to predict the interaction of the tire with road obstacles, and terrain for durability analysis.
