Hydroplaning or aquaplaning
An efficient tire must meet multiple objectives, including fuel consumption, durability, shock and cut resistance, rolling noise, grip on dry or wet roads, aquaplaning prevention… Many of these constraints involve complex physics and, for the most part, entail contradictory compromises.
Drawing on many years of aquaplaning-related experience with the tire manufacturer Michelin, we have constantly tried out and improved the SPH-flow solver.
- Easy and fast set-up
- Possible to measure global effort and local pressure map (on the tire and on the road)
- Only fluid phase can be simulated
- Efficient for splash
- FSI: coupling with proprietary and commercial FEM codes (3DS SIMULIA Abaqus, EDF Code_Aster)
- Optimized for HPC: scalability on a high number of cores, local refinement, reasonable simulation times
