Live Seminar Wed. Feb 24 for Tire Manufacturers: Perfect Your Product Development Cycles with Simulation and Analysis



Join us for a focused discussion on Simulation and Analysis

for Tire Manufacturers


Wednesday, February 24, 2016
9:00 am – 1:00 pm


Hilton Garden Inn, Akron, OH

Register Today! Seating is limited.

Join us for an in-depth look at a proven process that will help you accelerate innovation and improve product efficacy for your tire products. Heightened global pressures have put more focus on product innovation and accelerating time to market. Are you able to quickly analyze durability, material characterization, radial dimensions, and weight bearing loads? Learn how to build automated testing and validation workflows so new and existing products can get to the market faster than ever.Tire Simulation Analysis

In this seminar, we will establish a roadmap that will integrate various pieces of CAE technology into your existing simulation environment and improve the accuracy and efficiency of your analysis efforts while reducing the time and costs associated with product development.


This is a free in-person seminar in Akron, OH. Lunch is provided.

What We’ll Cover:

During the class, attendees will learn about:

  • Methods for modeling and simulating tires using Abaqus/CAE
  • Material characterization techniques for structural FE and durability analysis of elastomers
  • Process integration tools using Isight to enable optimization and other automated workflows
  • Application-specific product development CAD tools
