Heavy truck vehicle dynamics model and impact of the tire

This paper aims at sharing the work that has been done at Michelin to better understand the impact of the tire on the truck convoys handling performance and safety for heavy loaded usage. It describes a measurement campaign that has been done on track with dynamometric wheel and additional sensors to carry out a correlation study with a vehicle model that has been designed with Trucksim software from Mechanical Simulation Corporation. As a good tire model correlation with tests was observed, a tire cornering stiffness effect has been simulated and tested. It shows that the tire has a significant impact on the performance and that a Performance Based Standard criterion should be described in the future to master this point as the current criteria don’t take into account all aspects of the tire impact.
