6 We Shape the Megatrends in the Automotive Industry Safety, Environment, Information, Affordable cars Doing more.For zero emissions.Doing more.For safe mobility.Doing more.For global mobility.Doing more.For intelligent driving.
7 Major challenges (PLT, CVT) New legal limits in EUIntroduction of label system wwSolving various target conflictsIncreasing requirements for load capabilityNew tire sizes (reduced diameter or aspect ratio)Complexity managementTire NoiseRollling ResistanceWet Braking
8 Potential Cooperation Fields Vehicle Dynamics impact on tire forcesRoad surface characterization and its impact on rubber behaviorAdvanced understanding & numerical modeling of rubber - test, criteria,numerical implementation – under different load, temperature and time dependency.Rubber CreepRubber AgingRubber DamageAdvanced pre-processing techniques – automatizationCT Geometry (parametric) automatic meshOptimization/Sensitivity in FEM tire simulationsCriteria dependent numerical optimizationNumerical modeling of snow
9 Co-operation PLT Adhesion Aquaplaning Tread pattern Tyre noise FE of a tyre tread modelAquaplaningTyre noiseRolling resistance
10 Co-operation CVT What do we do? Construction & contour optimization Marketing RequestVirtual DevelopmentExperimental PhaseValidationIndustrializa-tionMarketing RequestVirtual DevelopmentExperimental PhaseValidationIndustrializa-tionWhat do we do?Start of serial productionConstruction & contour optimizationValidation by FEM calculationsFootprintsBelt Durability & Rolling ResistanceWear - mileageBead enduranceGroove crackingReference tire modelNew optimized tire modelWhat do we want to improve?Speed up FEM model setup procedure significantly (quality, accuracy, high level of automatization)We are searching for partner in potential areas for cooperation:modification/morphing of standard mesh to fit to input picture (CT – computer tomography of tire)modeling of 0°layer in truck tyres
