Three-Dimensional Traveling Load Finite Element 860811

This paper considers the development of finite element modelling schemes enabling the simulation of rolling tires. In particular, the moving Lagrangian type strategy is extended to 3-D type isoparametric elements. Because of its generality, the formulation can handle, kinematic and material nonlinearity, as well as, viscoelastic behavior. Overall, the procedure enables the modelling of 3-D rolling tires. To benchmark the procedure, a full tire simulation is treated. The results of this work are discussed in the paper.
