1 R & D Continental in Púchov Radoslav Fujerik Continental Technology Center Púchov, SK 8. November 2011, Zlín

2 M. Haufe/ Product Development Commercial Vehicles © Continental AG  Continental’s R&D activities in Slovakia (Tires)  Current Trends in tire development  Potential co-operation fields

3  As centralized as possible to maximize efficiencies  As decentralized as needed to support specific markets  more than 50 nations  6 ww R&D locations  prooving grounds ww  15 ww tire plants Continental‘s R&D activities in SK Global Technology Center Local Engineering Centers Hannover / DE Púchov / SK Local Engineering Centers Local Engineering Centers

4 Continental‘s R&D activities in SK M. Haufe/ Product Development Commercial Vehicles © Continental AG Global Technology Center Hannover / DE Púchov / SK R&D CONTINENTAL Hannover / DE R&D MATADOR Púchov / SK Hannover / DE Púchov / SK Joining Integrating Growing  committed to have R&D in SK  15% R&D employees by 2015  engineers / natural scientists  intermediate level of English  mobility / willingness to travel

5 Continental‘s R&D activities in SK M. Haufe/ Product Development Commercial Vehicles © Continental AG Tire Line Development Technical Benchmark Technology Development FEM Simulation Material Development Development of Production Tools

6 M. Haufe/ Product Development Commercial Vehicles © Continental AG Doing more. For intelligent driving. Doing more. For safe mobility. Doing more. For global mobility. Doing more. For zero emissions. We Shape the Megatrends in the Automotive Industry Safety, Environment, Information, Affordable cars

7 Major challenges (PLT, CVT) M. Haufe/ Product Development Commercial Vehicles © Continental AG  New legal limits in EU  Introduction of label system ww  Solving various target conflicts  Increasing requirements for load capability  New tire sizes (reduced diameter or aspect ratio)  Complexity management Tire Noise Rollling Resistance Wet Braking

8 Potential Cooperation Fields M. Haufe/ Product Development Commercial Vehicles © Continental AG  Vehicle Dynamics  impact on tire forces  Road surface characterization and its impact on rubber behavior  Advanced understanding & numerical modeling of rubber - test, criteria, numerical implementation – under different load, temperature and time dependency.  Rubber Creep  Rubber Aging  Rubber Damage  Advanced pre-processing techniques – automatization  CT  Geometry (parametric)  automatic mesh  Optimization/Sensitivity in FEM tire simulations  Criteria dependent numerical optimization  Numerical modeling of snow

9 Co-operation PLT M. Haufe/ Product Development Commercial Vehicles © Continental AG  Adhesion  Tread pattern  FE of a tyre tread model  Aquaplaning  Tyre noise  Rolling resistance

10 Co-operation CVT Reference tire model New optimized tire model Construction & contour optimization Validation by FEM calculations Footprints Belt Durability & Rolling Resistance Wear - mileage Bead endurance Groove cracking  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 Marketing Request Virtual Development Experimental Phase Validation Industrializa- tion Start of serial production Marketing Request Virtual Development Experimental Phase Validation Industrializa- tion What do we do? What do we want to improve?

11 Your Contacts M. Haufe/ Product Development Commercial Vehicles © Continental AG  Dr. Matthias Haufe, director of Technology Center Puchov  Martin Rypak, head of PLT Simulation  Jan Ondrisik, head of CVT Simulation  Radoslav Fujerik, head of Process Development (Curing & Curing Bladders)
