More tire modelling capabilities in Real-Time environments

By LoesvHaasteren

The Simcenter Tyre team releases MF-Tyre/MF-Swift 2019.1 with more possibilities to run in Real-Time environments and test with MSC ADAMS™


The previous release of MF-Tyre/MF-Swift (v7.3) already adopted the MF-Swift Enveloping functionality and OpenCRG implementation, enabling accurate tire modelling on uneven roads in Real-Time. Release MF-Tyre/MF-Swift 2019.1 adds multiple practical features as well as compatibility with MSC ADAMSTM

Highlights of the new features

MSC ADAMSTM compatibility

A completely new interface between MF-Tyre/MF-Swift and MSC ADAMSTM has been realized. This new interface supports native ADAMSTM roads as well as multi-thread simulations.

Thread safety

The MF-Tyre/MF-Swift software is now 100% thread safe, enabling parallel computation of tires over multiple threads.

Parameter estimation functionality

Parameter estimation functionality as implemented in MF-Tyre/MF-Swift v6.2 has also been implemented in v2019.1. This feature enables using datasets with as little as 5 model parameters, an ideal feature with which an optimal balance between tire testing effort and model accuracy can be obtained for each application.

Backward Magic Formula compatibility

MF-Tyre/MF-Swift v2019.1 accepts TIR-files with parameter sets of versions 5.2, 6.0, 6.1 and 6.2.


MF-Tyre/MF-Swift v2019.1 is currently available in combination with Matlab Simulink and MSC ADAMSTM. IPG CarMaker, Mechanical Simulation Corp CarSim and VI-CarRealTime support MF-Tyre/MF-Swift v7.3 for Real-Time applications.
