Load Simulation and Vehicle Performance (Part 3 of 5): Tire and Terrain
(Session Code: M107)

Room 111 B  8:00 a.m.

Focusing on tire and terrain mechanics modeling for load simulations, tire model development, parameters identification, and sensitivity analyses, tire test development, road profile characterization, effective road profile development, and interactions between tire, suspension/steering/brake systems, and different terrains, spindle loads/travel variation characteristics from proving ground test on deterministic and rough roads, terramechanics, tire noise, rolling resistance and correlation studies.
