Abstract: A rigid ring tyre model is developed using MATLAB/Simulink to predict the in-plane and out-of-plane rigid tyre model characteristics of a truck tyre running over different terrains. The in-plane and out-of-plane tyre characteristics include traction, cornering and vertical stiffness. The terrains used include hard surface, flooded surface, snow, and several soils such as dry and moist sand. The MATLAB/Simulink tyre model is validated against previously computed and published tyre-terrain interaction results performed using advanced simulations technique. The rigid ring tyre model is further implemented into a full vehicle model to evaluate the full vehicle response under several operating conditions.
