Abstract [en]

Virtual testing is nowadays the standard in the design process of new tires. Besides modeling the static response of the tire itself, the dynamics of a rolling tire in contact with the road needs to be incorporated. Due to the uncontrollable environmental conditions and the complex structure of the tires, it is advantageous to use small-scale testing under more controlled conditions. Experimental characterization of frictional properties of rubber compounds is, however, limited due to the necessity of complex measurement systems. In this paper a commercially available laboratory abrasion and skid tester is used to identify both friction and stiffness characteristics of the same rubber compound. The obtained friction properties are implemented in a finite element model of the setup, and different validation steps are presented. Finally, a steady-state transport approach is used to efficiently compute a steady-state solution, which is compared with the experimental results. The numerical results show a good qualitative agreement with the experimental results.
