Extracting Tire Modal Parameters from Test Data 2006-01-1399

Computer models used to study crashes require information to describe the vehicles. Information such as weight, length, wheelbase, tire locations, crush stiffness, tire parameters, etc. all require a reliable source. Usually the tire parameters are difficult to obtain. Analysts will routinely use default or “typical” values. In 1999, Engineering Dynamics Corp. (EDC) attempted to address this issue, with support from many in the field of crash reconstruction, by conducting tire tests. The resulting tire test data will be used to study motor vehicle performance. The computer simulations in use today require information about tire properties or lookup tables that must be extracted from raw collected data. This paper presents a basic overview of the tire test data and a technique for extracting the required tire parameters for use in computer simulation modeling.
