Add-on component library

The MapleSim Tire Component Library from Maplesoft allows engineers to extend their multidomain MapleSim vehicle models with high-performance pneumatic tire components. The add-on component library provides MapleSim users with industry-standard tire force model components. In addition, linear and user-defined tire models are available to provide flexibility for investigation and analysis. With MapleSim’s point-and-click graphical environment, these fully parameterized force models can be integrated into existing vehicle dynamics models by simply dragging the component into a diagram and connecting the component to the vehicle model. Users receive the following key features: kinematic quantities such as slip angle, longitudinal slip, and inclination angle are derived automatically and available to the user; engineers can control how the tire slip and rolling radius are calculated and include tire transients through differential equations involving relaxation lengths; and support for industry-standard tire models Fiala, Calspan, and Pacejka 2002.
