Computational techniques for the stochastic excitation of rolling tires from rough road surface contact

Bild zum Projekt Computational techniques for the stochastic excitation of rolling tires from rough road surface contact

Researcher:

Robert Lee Gates, M.Sc.; Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Nackenhorst

Funded by:

DFG (German Research Foundation)

Brief description:

In this project, we intend to address issues in modeling rolling tires on rough road surfaces by (a) extending previously developed methods by a stochastic excitation function describing the interaction of the macroscopic tire model and the detailed meso-mechanical contact behavior of the tire tread with the road surface; (b) including dynamic stiffening effects in the rubber compound.
