Engineering Dynamics Corp. has introduced the Engineering Dynamics Vehicle Simulation Model (EDVSM) software program which can simulate tire blowout.
Motor vehicle safety researchers and accident investigators can now research the effect of tire pressure loss on vehicle handling. Model can simulate either a gradual, sudden loss of tire pressure or the loss of pressure while negotiating a curve. The output includes a graphic depiction of vehicle trajectory and a chart of individual tire forces resulting from the event.
