How current developments are driving changes in tyres, chassis, and roadways

Megatrends such as the interconnectedness of automobiles cause high innovative pressure for tyres and chassis. Many questions still need to be answered: What are the functional benefits of interconnecting tyres and chassis? Does a controllable chassis make sense or will driving cease to be fun once automated driving arrives? How can tyres and chassis be joined in simulations and what are the future requirements for practical tyre simulation models?

The Tyres – Chassis – Roadway Conference will address these and many other issues. Topics range from future development processes to special aspects such as emissions and smart roads.



Our employees of the department »Mathematical Methods in Dynamics and Durability« will be presenting the following research topics:

Day 1
Wednesday, 25th October 2017

14:30 A study of parameter identification for a thermal-mechanical tire model based on Flat Track Measurements

  • Analysis of the Tire Temperature-dependent characteristics
  • Procedure for parameter identification of MTS Flat-Track
  • Advanced physical tire models for vehicle dynamics simulations
  • Effect of the tires temperature on vehicle dynamic

Francesco Calabrese, Manfred Bäcker and Christian Ludwig from Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center GmbH


Day 2
Thursday, 26th October 2017

12:10 Influence of the Dynamics of the Tyre Inflation Gas on Operating States

  • Tyre modelling and NVH 
  • Linearisation taking into account rotation
  • Combining structural and fluid mechanics

Axel Gallrein, Manfred Bäcker and Francesco Calabrese


Take this chance to meet other professionals in an informal atmosphere during the exclusive evening event. Don't miss the opportunity to participate in the VDI Event »Experience Technology« at the driving safety centre at the Hannover Fair in Laatzen prior to the conference.
