Tire modeling is critical for full vehicle simulations because all road excitations pass through the tires to the vehicle. The accurate representation of roads and tires and their interactions is one of the central challenges in full vehicle simulation.
CDTire is a family of sophisticated tire models capable of accurately representing the dynamic behavior of tires and the road-tire interaction.
This presentation gives an overview of tire modeling methods developed at Fraunhofer and made available through CDTire. The presentation covers three topics:
(a) Tire and road models that are commercially available today and where they can be used
(b) New developments in tire and road modeling technology
(c) Fraunhofer’s special relationship with Altair to make this technology available to you and how CDTire works with MotionSolve
