3D Numerical Simulation

3D Numerical Simulation

Aeolus tyres are designed with 3D simulation techniques, both experimental and numerical, which shorten the R&D timeframe, focusing only on the most promising technical solutions.
At the early stage of development, 3D simulation allows the prediction of the tyre performance under several conditions.
The product development is more accurate and able to deliver to the market new tyres with the exact performance defined during the design phase.

BENEFITS

  • Faster and more accurate developments
  • Excellent predictability of actual tyre performance
