Tyre characterisation and modelling

The global performance of any road vehicle is affected substantially by the performance of its tyres, which transmit all the tyre contact patch inputs to the rim and chassis. However, tyre behaviour is also affected by wheel motion, which is controlled by the vehicle chassis. It is therefore imperative to draw on all available tyre-characterisation [...]
