For open wheel road and race cars that maximise the benefits of aerodynamic forces, understanding how a tyre changing shape can effect this may be critical to performance. With expertise in tyres and their inner workings, Collins Limited have developed a process to rapidly model, test and correlate tyre simulations. The outputs can also be used to understand tyre contact patch pressures and shape through sensitivity studies on parameters such as camber and internal tyre pressure.

For use in external tools such as 3D modelling programs, the results can be exported to an STL file.
