Bicycle tire measurements and steady-state models, for use in vehicle dynamic simulations

Recent studies, which use standard multibody dynamics software to investigate various dynamic scenarios, have revealed a need for a bicycle tire model. Unfortunately, the literature to date on the mechanical behaviour of bicycle tires is sparse, and there are no validated bicycle tire models. The purpose of this study is to present a number of validated steady-state bicycle tire models, which can be used in vehicle dynamic simulations. These models are based on an extensive bicycle tire measurement program, executed in the past years in Milwaukee and Delft by Dressel. Besides the presentation of the validated models, we also make the raw data from the measurements available, such that future studies can use these for other model approaches.
