Over the last several years, Goodyear has introduced an unprecedented string of award-winning new products as a direct consequence of the company's switch to analysis-based tire design. Although tires appear simple on the surface, analysis-based tire design is possible only through extensive use of high performance computing. High performance computing is required both at the conceptual stage when large numbers of design alternatives are evaluated and at the final development stages when we capture nuances of the tire's response. This talk describes Goodyear's application of teraflop computing to tire design.
