Through the use of vehicle and tire simulation, fewer prototypes need to be built and a better end product can be developed in shorter time – but to accurately simulate a vehicle, its tires’ behavior must be accurately simulated as well.
Calspan has extensive experience supporting OEMs with virtual tire development and validation. This includes testing and modeling benchmarking tires, evaluating submissions (both virtually and in the lab), as well generating highly accurate virtual models for final product validation.
With Calspan has a partner, our OEM customers can focus on developing the best possible vehicle while Calspan focuses on developing the most accurate tire models.
Whether it's a first hand-built prototype tire or validation of mass production samples, Calspan can test, model and evaluate tire performance to provide the data needed to stay on track.
As the vehicle development process is going virtual, Calspan has all the equipment, tools and software to generate, evaluate and validate virtual tire submissions.
