Physical Models

Physical Models developed by MegaRide constitute the RIDEsuite. It comprises four main elements, able to simulate in detail the physical effects characterizing a vehicle interacting with the external environment: the physical thermal model “thermoRIDE” to predict, in real-time, the local temperature of tires; the energy-based wear model “weaRIDE” to take into account and predict the degradation phenomena interesting tire tread polymers; the multi-contact footprint envelope model “threedeeRIDE” to improve the drivers’ feeling and to reproduce the ride dynamics caused by curbs, bumps and road roughness in driving sessions; the advanced interaction model “adheRIDE” to collect the information of the other physical models, taking into account tread wear phenomena, road roughness, compound viscoelasticity and grip/temperature/pressure.
