 January 21, 2004, 08:30 Simulation of tires #1 Marco Aurelio Melo Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Hi everybody! I'm tryng to simulate the tires of a car, in fact i'm simulatng a complete car! But now i'm having problems with the tires because they're close of the ground, about 1 cm. So the mesh is poor between the ground and tires. Can any one help me out telling me how to redifine the mesh in this area. thank you all!

The best place to find out how to mesh this interaction is to be found in the research papers. Sounds like a visit to the library is in order. Glenn

You might be better off trying to break the model down and and just look at the road tyre flow problem. A paper which describes this sort of modelling problem is: "Formula 1 Car Wheel Aerodynamics", W.P.Kellar, S.R.G. Pearse and A.M. Savill, Sports Engineering (1999) 2, pp203-212, Blackwell Science Ltd. The paper is quite basic but worth a read, very little technical data is presented. James

This papers presented on this link might be of some use to you. http://www.advantage-cfd.co.uk/public.htm James
