CenTire: UNT Site Initiative

UNT has additional capabilities in materials, modelling, manufacturing and testing. Areas include

  • Reliability and long term property predictions
  • Dynamics and controls
  • Sustainability and recycling of tires for value added products
  • Strain rate-temperature-lifetime predictions
  • Controlled cellular architecture for lightweight design
  • Multiscale modeling of elastomers and tires
  • 3D printing of  elastomers and tires
  • Carbon nanomaterials/elastomer composites for new functionality
  • Rubber chemistry
  • Wheel-tire interaction
  • Rolling Resistance of Tires and Aerodynamic Drag for Estimating Fuel Economy,
  • Thermal modelling
