ERJ staff report (BC)
Coventry, UK - A Tire Mathematical Modelling Course will be held concurrently with Tire Technology Expo 2013 in Cologne, Germany, on 4-5 February 2013 - commencing on the day before the expo and main conference.
Presenters will include Mike Blundell, Professor of Vehicle Dynamics and Impact at Coventry University.
This course covers the computer modelling of tires within a full vehicle system. It is aimed at engineers and researchers working in both industry and academia.
The subject matter will be of primary interest to vehicle dynamicists, for whom the tire is the primary force and moment generation element on the vehicle.
The course will start with an overview of the force and moment characteristics generated in the tire contact patch, progressing through the way in which these are captured through laboratory testing and including empirical models for usefully accurate representation.
The specific requirements for aircraft and motorcycle tire models will be covered, as will the development of physical tire models to predict the interaction of the tire with road obstacles and terrain for durability analysis.
