cosin scientific software provides cutting-edge tire and road dynamics simulation tools.
Cosin’s flagship software, FTire (Flexible Structure Tire Model), is a physics-based, 3D nonlinear tire simulation model. It is used in a wide field of applications within most of the important MBS, FE, and systems simulation environments.
Together with sophisticated, stiff and flexible road surface models, as well as flexible rim models, and a powerful toolbox for tire and road data processing, FTire is the most comprehensive software package for tire dynamics simulations on the market.
FTire and Simulia Solutions FTire has a well-maintained and regularly tested interface to Abaqus, Simpack, and Dymola FTire uses the same library, data files, and the same kind of licensing in all environments FTire completely separates the road model evaluation from the calling vehicle model, thus tremendously widening the class of supported road models FTire is faster than FE-based tire models by several orders of magnitude FTire takes into account more relevant tire properties, such as bulk and surface temperatures, air cavity vibrations, flexible or viscoelastic road surfaces, tread wear predictions, and many more Abaqus can be used to parameterise FTire. The respective new method exhibits many advantages over the classical, measurement-based approach, among them: applicability in very early stages of tire design, thus extending FTire’s scope from a ‚tire description tool‘ to a ‚tire design tool‘ tremendous cost reduction by saving lab time use of non-standard load-cases for which no test-rig exists improved repeatability and easy modification of operating conditions within wide bounds For more details visit: http://www.cosin.eu
