Tire characterization

Unterstanding tire properties

Tire properties constitute a fundamental piece of knowledge for any vehicle dynamics study.

Dynamotion provides a comprehensive characterization of your tires, including:

  • forces and moments generated by sideslip and camber (up to 50deg),
  • structural stiffness and damping characteristics
  • maximum friction,
  • effects of load and inflation pressure.

Depending on the required application, results can be provided in various formats, such as .tir files with Pacejka’s Magic Formula 6.2 coefficients, ready to be used in widespread multibody software, including Dynamotion’s FastBike.
