Tires and Vehicles

Simple and complex tires, vehicle bodies

Blocks in the Simscape™ Driveline™ Tires and Vehicles library allow you to test the response of your driveline model under various and variable environmental conditions. You can also add fidelity to your model by specifying properties such as compliance, inertia, and rolling resistance for the tires and center of gravity and frontal area for the vehicle body.
