Abstract: ABSTRACTThe existing tire models are basically of three kinds: essentially empirical ("magic formulas"), or mixed empirical/analytical, or extremely complex theoretical models almost useless in practical situations. The model here proposed does not require any empirical data, and presents a simple theoretical approach very suitable to use in project and analysis of real suspension systems. This paper presents a physical and mathematical model for the mechanical behavior of pneumatic car tires, in the particul…
