Modern tires are among the most complex structures in production and their complexities span a broad range of the capabilities available in Abaqus. Since tire modeling is a specialized field, this seminar covers the many important yet basic capabilities in Abaqus that are specifically relevant to tire modeling.

The topics include:

  • Choosing appropriate elements
  • Methods of modeling reinforcement
  • Contact modeling details pertinent to tire modeling
  • Fundamentals of material modeling-stress and strain measures, material directions
  • Linear elasticity, hyperelasticity and viscoelasticity
  • Efficient axisymmetric to three-dimensional model generation and results transfer

Note that this online course is a customized subset of the Tire Analysis with Abaqus: Fundamentals course.

Who Should Attend

This course is recommended for tire analysts with experience using Abaqus.
