Research on Tire Wear Properties Based on FEM
YE Shubin;Zang Mengyan;South China University of Technology;
It introduces the method of tire wear performance assessment on the basis of FEM,uses finite element models of 205 /55 /R16 radial tire with three tread patterns to rolling simulation under nine loading conditions.Based on ABAQUS it obtains the nodal contact force and the nodal slip rate between the tread and ground,figures out the tread wear amount of the tire after traveling 80000 kilometers via taking advantage of the relationship between frictional energy dissipation and wear amount. The wear amount of the slick tire is less than that of the patterned tire. Finally it shows the secondary development technology for the post- processing technique of the ABAQUS and contour plots of the frictional energy dissipation rate.
