  1. 1. Optimization of truck tyres selection

    Author : Zuzana Nedelkova; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; radial basis function; categorical variables; truck tyres; simulation-based optimization; surrogate model; approximately optimal solution; efficient solution; rolling resistance coefficient; vehicle dynamics; simulation-based optimization;

    Abstract : This thesis, which consists of an introduction and five appended papers, concerns the optimal selection of tyres for a variety of vehicle configurations as well as operating environments. The selection problem stems from a project cooperation between Chalmers University of Technology and Volvo Group Trucks Technology. READ MORE

  2. 2. The simulation of car and truck tyre vibrations, rolling resistance and rolling noise

    Author : Carsten Hoever; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; rolling resistance; rolling noise; tyres; vibrations; waveguide finite element; tyre road interac- tion; BEM; fuel efficiency; parameter study; road surface properties; numerical modelling;

    Abstract : The road transportation sector places a severe burden on the environment in the form of CO2 emissions and road traffic noise. Both of these environmental prob- lems can be related to car and truck tyres. READ MORE

  3. 3. Passenger Car Wheel Aerodynamics

    Author : Christoffer Landström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : CFD; tyres; wind tunnel; Passenger car aerodynamics; ground simulation; wheel rotation; drag; wheels;

    Abstract : Current and future requirements for efficiency force the automotive industry to consider all aspects of reducing the energy consumption of road going vehicles. An important aspect of reducing fuel consumption is reduced aerodynamic drag, which at highway cruising speeds is dominating the total drag force for both cars and heavy goods vehicles. READ MORE

  4. 4. Power dissipation in car tyres

    Author : Martin Fraggstedt; Svante Finnveden; Michael Brennan; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Acoustics; Akustik;

    Abstract : Traffic is a major source of green house gases. The transport field stands for 32 % of the energy consumption and 28 % of the total CO2 emissions, where road transports alone causes 84 % of these figures. READ MORE

  5. 5. On Tyre Rotation Modelling and Cooling Flow Measurements

    Author : Teddy Hobeika; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CFD; Aerodynamics; Tyres; cooling flow; air mass flow;

    Abstract : With the technological computer advancements, vehicle development is relying more and more on simulations as an alternative to testing. A similar trend follows in aerodynamic development of vehicles where Computational Fluid Dynamics(CFD) simulations are increasing in complexity and accuracy. READ MORE
