Abstract:
Numerical solutions are presented for the action of an individual tread element on a wet pavement. Complicate tread geometry and time-dependent loading condition are taken into account in the numerical procedure. A new hydrodynamic lubrication approach based on a product method is applied to conduct the study at greatly increased computational efficiency. Extensive simulation study for various geometries was achieved using finite-element method.Results from the study provide quantitative guidelines to tire designer in the search for the optimum pattern of individual tread element on the basis of thin film wet traction.
