The advancement of computerized modeling has allowed for the creation of extensive pneumatic tire models. These models have been used to determine many tire properties and tire-road interaction parameters which are either prohibitively expensive or unavailable with physical models.

This paper focuses on the prediction of tire-ground interaction with emphasis on individual and combined effect of tire slip angle and camber angle at various operating parameters. The forces generated at tire contact such as rolling resistance, cornering force, aligning moment and overturning moment can be predicted and used to optimize the tire design parameters. In addition to above stated, the three-groove FEA truck tire model representing radial-ply tire of size 295/75R22.5 was used in vertical load deflection test to determine enveloping characteristics under various load conditions and inflation pressures.
