Tires, Wheels, and Brakes

GearSim has a broad analysis capability that can be reinforced with the integration of advanced tire models.


The software tool is ideal during planning and support of tire performance tests and analyzing test results. 


It provides realistic vehicle dynamic analysis to provide insight into testing conditions to reproduce the tire’s dynamic environment as closely as possible; these simulations are ideal for prediction of tire wear and the associated maintenance.


GearSim’s advanced steering, braking and anti-skid models enable studies in which the detailed landing gear subsystem parameters that most affect tire wear and performance can be identified.
