As an important sub-system of vehicle, tire has significant effect on the response of driver and road inputs. However, tire performance study is also sophisticated due to tires’ composite structure and nonlinear material properties. The emerging tire research approaches recently, such as new experimental device and powerful computational method have promoted the investigation of tire forces and moments, NVH, fatigue and fracture, stress and strain, heating generation, hydroplaning, braking distance, etc.


This Special Issue focuses on the recent advances in tire characterization using experiment, simulation and analysis methods. The subjects cover tire performance test, tire material modelling, tire design sensitivity, tire behavior modelling (FEM, Analytical, Physical etc.), tire-road-vehicle system dynamics for passenger car tire, truck/bus tire, racing tire etc.


It is expected that researchers from both tire industry and academia can communicate their new findings in this special issue regarding the diversity of tire characterization method.



 Paper topics include, but are not limited to, the following.

  • Tire Performance Experiment

Force and Moment, Rolling Resistance, Profile and Stiffness, Strain and Stress, Durability, Dynamic Balance, Uniformity, etc.


  • Tire Modelling and Simulation

Materials Properties Characterization, Structure Design Parameters Sensitivity, Heating Generation, Fatigue and Fracture, Wear, Hydroplaning, Enveloping Property, Tire Pattern Design, Aircraft Tire Property, Rolling Tire on Soil and Snow Roads, etc.


  • Tire-Road-Vehicle System
