Tire Footprint Analysis

Measuring the changes of a tire under different loads can lead to improved handling and response. Additionally, knowing the void ratio of the tire is critical for understanding the water displacement potential of the design.

See how pressure mapping can play a role in evaluating product performance, like capturing tire footprint pressure patterns:

Tire Footprint Products

The TireScan™ system is a unique tool used to capture tire footprint pressure patterns. Tire footprints can be captured statically or dynamically and are displayed as high resolution, multi-colored images of the tire contact pressure pattern in real time. The system's intuitive, application specific graphing and image analysis software enables quantitative and qualitative analysis of the tire footprint.

There are two platforms that can map and evaluate tire footprints:

TireScan CrossDrive

TireScan CrossDrive System

TireScan CrossDrive utilizes a large high-resolution sensor, compatible with a wide range of tire sizes. The integrated electronics in the rugged housing make for a durable system that can be quickly set up and transported.

CrossDrive System TCR8540 measures all tire types from passenger tires to aircraft.
