Congress: The influence of design, construction and material parameters on tire properties

Event: FISITA World Congress 14-16 September 2021 online

Name: Florian Birnbaum, PhD Candidate

Company: Technische Universität Dresden

Presentation Title: F2020-VDC-088 Influence of Objective Tire Characteristics on Vehicle Dynamics of Battery Electric SUVs with Focus on Low Rolling Resistance Tires

Please introduce yourself briefly…

I'm Florian Birnbaum and I'm a doctoral candidate of automotive engineering at the Technische Universität Dresden. I focus on research concerning the interactions of rolling resistance and tire properties, which have a significant impact on vehicle dynamics and ride comfort.

What you will talk about at this year’s FISITA World Congress?

I will talk about the influence of tire characteristics on vehicle dynamics with focus on low rolling resistance tires. On the basis on five physically existent tires of one dimension, the influence of design, construction and material parameters on tire properties are investigated. Objective values are analyzed on component and vehicle level.

What benefits will participants gain from your presentation?

  • An understanding of the influence of construction and material parameters on objective tire values.

  • An understanding of interactions between tire properties and the lateral vehicle dynamics.

Which trends do you consider as the most important for your domain of research and your geographical region?

In this context, I consider the electrification of mobility and the autonomous driving as the most important trends.

What challenges do these trends present?

  • The electrification of mobility emphasises the importance of the tire/road noise.

  • In autonomous driving, estimating tire properties under all road and weather conditions is a major challenge.

And what opportunities do these trends offer?

An increasing number of new tire concepts and intelligent tires.

About the FISITA World Congress

Since 1947, the FISITA World Congress has been the leading international meeting place for industry experts, engineers and executives to exchange ideas and discuss the trends that drive the automotive industry forward. The theme for the 38th FISITA World Congress is 'From automobile to mobility. New roles. New challenges' and it will take place 14-16 September 2021, with the opportunity for the global audience to join virtually available for the first time. Registration is now open, with the Early Bird and special registration rates available until 31 August 2021.

Content from the 2020 FISITA Web Congress is available within the FISITA Technical Library, while material from previous Congress events back to 1998 is available in the FISITA Store. By the time of this year’s Congress, all the content will be available within the FISITA Technical Library, with free access provided to FISITA members.
