The BNPS Model - An Automated Implementation of the “Magic Formula” Concept 931909

The “Magic Formula” concept is an elegant, empirical method of fitting tire data for inclusion in vehicle dynamics models. Its behavior as a function of parameter values is explained in detail in this paper.
This paper presents the BNPS model, a modification of the Magic Formula concept, which has been fully automated on a personal computer. This allows the ready reduction of data into practical Magic Formula type models without any investment of engineering time.
BNPS fitting example results are presented.
