Research content

Area: mobility(tire, shoes, wheel), sport goods(golf, tennis, bicycle, etc.)
Tools: FEA, optimization, human engineering

  • 1.Study on structure-noise interaction by FEA in order to reduce exterior tire noise
    (1) establish the procedure of structure-noise interaction by FEA in order to reduce exterior tire noise
    (2) visualize tire noise near the contact surface which is difficult to see by an experiment
    (3) propose an improved structure and pattern and verify it
  • 2. Study on analytical model of self-abrasive wear of a tire
    (1) develop an analytical model of self-abrasive wear of a tire
    (2) propose an improved structure and pattern and verify it
  • 3. Study on sport goods by combining FEA with optimization technique
    (1) develop the procedure to combine FEA with optimization technique in order to analyze composite structure of sport goods
    (2) propose an improved structure and verify it
