ABSTRACT
The article reports that new technology for simulating tyre performance on a range of different road surfaces has been developed by scientists at Bridgestone Corp. in Japan. Known as Comprehensive Road Surroundings Simulation, the high-powered software is expected to enable engineers to optimise the design of tyre tread patterns by simulating behaviour on unpaved roads in the sun, rain and snow. The tool is specifically intended for use in the design of tread patterns for 4 x 4s, earthmoving, agricultural and all-terrain vehicles.
