Tire Thermal Model for Enhanced Vehicle Dynamics Simulation 2009-01-0441
Brush models permit a more physical simulation of tire performance in comparison with models based on empirical formulas.
The paper presents an empirical model for the estimation of tire temperature as function of the actual working conditions of the component.
The estimated temperature values enter a tire brush model and provoke the variation of the performance in terms of tangential forces. The model can be empirically tuned through experimental data showing the variation of tire performance as function of temperature.
The experimental validation of the model is dealt with in detail.
