Simulation and validation of tire deformation under certain load cases
2006 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This master’s thesis deals with computer aided simulations of mechanical systems in the automotive industry. The specific target of simulation is the pneumatic tire and its behaviour. The aim is to establish a method to use computer simulations for shortening the development cycle and reducing the need for testing and physical prototypes. The work has been separated into several steps, starting with a thorough information study, continuing with creative methods and concept creation. Later on, an evaluation of the concepts has been performed, to find the best approach to continue working on. The selected concepts from the evaluation were further developed to result in the final simulation method. The results of the simulations have then been validated against measurements. A proposal for further work in the subject has been made, as well as ideas for other projects.
