A smoother road for tyre development

Tuesday, 21 June, 2016

A more advanced computer model and measurement approach enable manufacturers to more accurately predict tyre performance on the road. Developed by an EU-funded project, the model and approach could aid in the design of higher-performing, safer and quieter tyres and boost the industry's competitiveness.

Manufacturers use computer simulations as a less expensive, risk-free way to predict how new products – or changes to existing ones – would behave under real-life conditions.
