Special Issue on Emerging Trends in Tire Modeling, Measurement for Vehicle Dynamical Analysis, and Control
Vehicle dynamic performance is predominantly controlled by tire dynamic characteristics through the forces and moments generated at the tire-road contact patch. Over the past few decades, a variety of advanced tire models and measuring techniques have been developed. However, many challenges remain unsolved since tire mechanics and tire-road-vehicle-environment interaction mechanisms are complicated. Accurate tire behavior prediction outside tested conditions for all possible running conditions, scenarios, and environments is very challenging. The intelligence tire system as a real-time sensor to measure/estimate tire forces and road friction conditions is highly desirable for chassis control systems.
This special issue will focus on tire modeling, tire measurement techniques for vehicle dynamics analysis, and chassis coordination control to deal with the electric, intelligent, and sharing for vehicle systems in the future. It is a peer-reviewed platform for both industry and academia to present survey, theoretical, and experimental results.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Tire measurement techniques
- Determination of tire model parameters
- Application of tire models to vehicle dynamics
- Measurement and modeling of rubber friction
- Evaluation and verification of tire models
- Tire modeling for complex environments
- Tire models
- Noise, vibration, and harshness of tire
- Tire-wear prediction and test techniques
- Smart and intelligence tires
- Tire models for chassis control
- Tire models for special applications
