Tire-Soil Interaction Modeling with Abaqus

Tire-soil interaction has a direct impact on tire performance. It is applicable in the modeling of heavy industrial equipment, farm machinery, and related off-road applications. The Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian (CEL) method is well suited for this application.

This eSeminar demonstrates the use of Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian functionality in Abaqus for modeling tire-soil interaction. It includes:

  • A discussion as to why CEL is beneficial for such applications.
  • Material modeling and calibration guidelines for soil, focusing primarily on the Modified Drucker-Prager/Cap plasticity model.
  • A brief review of the modeling workflow in Abaqus for tires.
  • The traditional and advanced CEL technique (Adaptive Mesh Refinement).
  • An example of a tire-soil analysis setup.

Watch this eSeminar to discover best practices for tire-soil interaction modeling.
