Tyre simulation challenges
This paper aims to give an overview on the most challenging tasks of today and tomorrow for tyre simulation success in complete vehicle environments. It gives some comments on the achieved level of maturity in tyre simulation, mentions weak spots and issues in daily work, and suggests some areas worth working on, e.g. open standardised reference implementations of tyre simulation models to improve the cooperation in the vehicle dynamics community of researchers, tyre suppliers, and car manufacturers by far. It also gives insight into the efficient curved regular grid approach to represent digital road profiles for simulation purposes.
