Hi Naveen,

What is the objective of the simulation, based on which methodology can be decided.


Based on above inputs, the force as function of time can be applied at tyre centre and transient run can be performed.

Hi Mr.Gopal,


   Thank you for the reply

   Can be done in transient. We are planning to do in optistruct.

   Steel property defined for wheel. Rubber property to be defined for tire

   What material card can be defined for rubber property in optistruct (Suggest us in material card and basic properties)

   Load is given using rigid element at disc centre

   Contact between ground and tyre defined(need clarification on defining contacts)

   Image attached for your reference
