Cover Story (view full-size image): A thermal tire model was proposed to describe the tread, carcass, and inflation gas temperatures. The magic formula was modified to incorporate the temperature effect on the force capability of a tire to achieve higher accuracy in the simulation environment. The proposed tire model was evaluated for various maneuvers of the Formula Student vehicle. The simulation results demonstrated a high correlation to the measurement data for steady-state maneuvers and limited accuracy in highly dynamic driving. In addition, the results showed that neglecting temperature results in higher root mean square error of lateral acceleration and yaw rate. View this paper.
