The Tire Technology International 2021 Annual Review is now available online! Packed full of news, interviews and features, including:
TESTING TIRES AND CONSUMPTION : Experts from Michelin explain how measuring fuel consumption in vehicles in convoy is an efficient method to experimentally demonstrate the benefit of low-rolling-resistance tires.
TIRE-ROAD INVESTIGATIONS : An exploration at Virginia Tech’s Center for Tire Research into vehicle and road surface parameter estimation using an intelligent-tire-based setup, which is key to exploration of the dynamic interactions at the tire-road contact interface.
STUDYING RUBBER EPOXIDATION : Research by the Malaysian Rubber Board’s Technology & Engineering division demonstrates that development of highly dispersible silica and silica-silane systems is enabling improvements in tire performance characteristics, extending the magic triangle.
ELASTOMER BLENDS FOR MARS TIRES : With metal-based wheel designs proving to be of limited use on Martian rovers, the University of Twente examines whether rubber solutions could represent the future of planet-based colonization missions.
SIMULATING TIRE MANUFACTURING : Research by Hankook Tire, in partnership with Technische Universität Dresden, explores ways in which the application of finite element analysis can yield a range of vital insights into the intricacies of the tire production process.
