Vehicle Model with Delft-Tyre in SimMechanics



Vehicle model in SimMechanics using 3-D tire model

| Watch this File

File Information

This file contains a full-vehicle model of a passenger car that can be configured to run several different tests, including slalom, 4-post testrig, and a parking maneuver. It requires Delft-Tyre software from TNO Automotive, which can be requested from The model uses SimMechanics Second Generation technology.

Please read the README.txt file to get started.

To see a demonstration of this model and the tire model, watch this video (2.5 min):

How can I get the Delft-tyre MATLAB package? Could you help me?

21 Oct 2014 Jayil Jeong

Just like other people, I am trying to find the Delft-tyre MATLAB toolbox. Could you help me out?

Hello Arthur, I just sent you a private e-mail.

I've got excited watching the demonstration of this model. However, similar to many other people here that I could not get a reply from the request of the tyre model. Could you help me out?

I have installed MF-Tyre, now I would like to change the dimension of the tyre within the 'tyre property file'. How can I modify all the other parameters (stiffness, slip, etc.) according to the different tyre geometry? The scalig coefficients can help me?

Hello Damir, you will receive an e-mail from TNO within today.

I've got the same problem like sharmin. I've sent the request but have no reply. Steve Miller, could you help me, please?
Thank you.

nickx88: Which version of MATLAB are you using? If possible, please use R2013b.

sharmin: I have sent a follow-up email to TNO Automotive concerning your request.

i have requested the tyre mdoel yet they have not given me..can anyone help me on this,i want to use this model

I have installed the MF-Tyre software and I have the library simMechanics Second generation technology toolbox in my Matlab version. I have still a problem: when I launch the startup, the vehicle model appears, but in some blocks there are unresolved links. Those blocks correspond to the sm_lib library. Do you know how I could fix this problem?
Thank you

There is a four-post option in the main vehicle dynamics model. However, that one currently requires the tire model. I'll try to add a version where the 3D tire model is replaced by a 1D spring-damper.

"With no tire model, however,the car will simply fall due to gravity" how can i put it on 4-post and apply some forces to wheels without delft-tyre. I just wanna see it as a visualation. or can i ride it on ground again without delft-tyre. I dont want tire model..

The suspension on this model is quite simple -- roll axis and heave axis, front and rear. An active suspension would probably need independent suspensions on left and right sides. See SimMechanics shipping example sm_double_wishbone_suspension.

is it possible to apply active vibration control to this model ?
