Computer Simulation Gives Michelin A Competitive Edge

2018-10-25

Computer simulation is at the very heart of innovation. Simulation tools are present at every stage of our design process. Moreover, simulation is continuing to develop. It is moving from the expert design office to be even more integrated; it is a source of creativity and a catalyst for acceleration. It is becoming a key element to make the customer experience more fluid.

 

By combining physics and data processing, we will be able to offer our customers high-performing predictions and advice. This will help us remain a key stakeholder on a market where newcomers are very aggressive.

 

Our simulation strategy includes everything that varies performance, from molecules to the finished tire and vehicle wear. We study all elements that contribute to performance. To do this, we use extremely varied expertise in chemistry, materials and every aspect of physics. Our tools incorporate models at several levels to recreate real performances and generate a virtual twin of the tire. Our teams of mathematicians, mechanics and chemists determine the right math and physics laws to incorporate into our models. We then have several levels of simulation that progressively lead us to models of tires for vehicles: bikes, cars, trucks, planes, etc.

 

The simulation will help us understand how a new and a worn tire behaves and how accidental damage can affect performance. It is very useful in the logic of sustainability and it helps us increase the lifetime of our products safely and securely.
